Construction Management is the art of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life of a construction project by using modern construction management techniques to achieve predetermined objectives of scope, cost, time, and quality and participation satisfaction. Project management in construction encompasses a set of objectives which may be accomplished by implementing a series of operations subject to resource constraints. There are potential conflicts between the stated objectives with regard to scope, cost, time and quality, and the constraints imposed on human material and financial resources. These conflicts should be resolved at the onset of a project by making the necessary tradeoffs or creating new alternatives. The construction management techniques are useful to professionals in the construction field in their day to day construction endeavours. This study had necessitated the assessment of the various Construction Management Techniques in the Nigeria Construction Industry taking Ibadan in Oyo State as a case study. The technique discussed in this study include Gantt chart, Programme Evaluation and Review Technique ( PERT), Critical Path Method ( CPM), Line of Balance, Work Breakdown Structure, PRINCE 2 , Network Analysis, Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT), Project Sensitivity Analysis, Cost Benefit Analysis and lot of others and factors such as Size of the project, Location of the project, Type of Client Source of finance , Complexity of the project, Vitality of the materials, Poor planning, Materials storage, Cost of transportation and storage and so on constitute the factors affecting construction Management Techniques in the Nigeria Construction Industry.
