Item description for Turnberry Consulting: Development: An Approach to Management and Strategy by Tim Wilson...
Development: an Approach to Management and Strategy looks at the work of Turnberry Consulting, a planning consultancy created to assist landowners to develop real estate projects. This unique practice tends not to act for developers, insurance companies or pension funds-or any organization where the primary motive for development is finance. Nearly all of their projects evolve from practical need, where quality and functionality are the prime driving forces.
Although a relatively small company, Turnberry Consulting is able to influence major projects in terms of direction and approach. Turnberry's main activities cover development strategy, town planning and real estate, with project managers taking a pivotal role.
In some cases, such as Ascot Racecourse or Cadbury at Bournville, they can be intimately involved in a project for a decade; in others their influence is more transitory. They have worked in varied locations with major clients across the UK: in and around Oxford, at the University, the Royal Infirmary, and the redeveloped Wolvercote Paper Mill; at the University of Hertfordshire; Inverness, and elsewhere in the Highlands; prior to the major Ascot project, they are involved in the first stages of work on Belmont and Longchamp racetracks in the United States.
All of these locations will be shown in a range of beautiful full color illustrations. Development: an Approach to Management and Strategy provides insight into how Turnberry's bespoke, small-scale, conceptual approach compares to the more traditional workings of the project management industry, rejecting the rigid structures of more conventional systems management models and critical path analyses.
The book sets out Turnberry's philosophy on the mechanics of planning processes, as they relate to major sports developments and entertainment complexes, alongside illustrated case studies of their work. Interviews with past colleagues, collaborators and clients inform the text, providing an inside view of their methodologies and history, from the engineers and architects that have helped to realize developments to the landowners and prominent cultural figures who make the commissions.
This book will be of interest to organizations contemplating major projects, practitioners in the development industry, architects and planners, and anyone studying project management or related disciplines.
