Author Name: Col. Nishith Behari Saxena (Retd.) | Format: Paperback | Genre : Technology & Engineering | Other Details

As of date, there is no book exists pertaining to skill development and training for the unorganized labor class in the construction sector at the bottom of the pyramid. However, for diploma and degree engineers, there are thousands of books that mostly refer to designs and theories but no book talks about practices on the ground at the site. Which are totally different, especially in the Indian subcontinent. This book elaborates on the methodologies and application of complex technology which an engineer has to explain and train the academically challenged labor who is not even eighth-grade pass at times. This book gives an idea of how the new technology can be taught to labor so that the desired results as per clients' requirements are achieved.
