A questionnaire was prepared on the basis of a literature review and was filled by contractors, project management experts having more than 20 years of experience in the construction field in India. This paper presents the results of a study carried out to identify some of the core issues in construction management which are mentioned above, as a skeleton of integrated project management system for construction industry, and highlights the implication of studying some techniques to explain the asset and softness for this knowledge area.
