I've worked in IT procurement and vendor management for the past 7 years and now I have an opportunity to transition into another area of procurement -- construction and engineeering. What new concepts must I quickly add to my knowledgebase? I'm already researching the area and discovering new terms like "logistics management" and "strategic sourcing." What book would best serve me to help me transition to this new area of procurement and supplier management? Thanks for any advice.

I would suggest some FIDIC books depending on your specific area: residential/commercial buildings or infrastructure, etc.
