Understanding Project Management

Whether you manage internal projects, contribute to a project (i.e. subcontract) or oversee projects (i.e. General Contractor), understanding the whole project management picture is essential to making your contribution to the project as successful as possible.

Projects in the construction industry are complex. Not only are accurate planning and forecasting methods required; people management, communication and risk management skills are essential to delivering a project within scope, on time, within budget and to an acceptable level of quality. 

A project can make or break your company. A bad project can be hard to live down; a great project can set the stage for significant growth. How important is it for you to invest time and effort in getting project management right?
