    Abstract

    Inadequacies in considering the variable backgrounds of site managers during the process of designing their training have been cited as one of the reasons for the small number of adequately trained site managers within the UK construction industry. It is argued that the job of site managers are significantly influenced by the situational, organizational and personal variables that impact their job and this tends to render generic training schemes offered at the industry not very effective. A research was carried out to investigate the validity of this claim. On the assumption that these variables can have a significant influence on the roles and tasks of site managers, the research sought to establish a tangible approach for conceiving the training of site managers at the industry level. The findings suggest that the roles and tasks of site managers' are generally common across the varied background site managers, construction organisations and types of projects. A generic framework for conceiving the roles and tasks of site managers at the industry level can be established.
