Design management helps in this regard along with many other benefits it provides. This study examines the effectiveness of design management in the built industry in Nigeria. To achieve this, aim a review of the current literature was done first before administering questionnaires to one-hundred and forty-one professionals in the built industry (architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers and builders).
