A/E's, Owners, & Contractors: Managing Projects to Success
The general business environment to which construction projects respond consists of economic, political, physical, and social aspects. However, the commonly used definition of project management does not address all the grounds mentioned. Often, with depressing regularity, projects that were completed with an apparent success in time, cost and quality, still ended with dissatisfaction or conflict resulting in litigation and arbitration. Defining project success requires conceptual thinking. We need to conceive a project as a 'linked chain of measured achievements' and the success definition needs to be measurable. This 5-hour interactive online course consists of eight sections providing the information and procedures for owners, owner representatives, architects, engineers, and contractors to complete satisfactory successful projects. This course also includes recommendations for the increasingly important concern of health, safety and welfare of workers at the jobsite.
This course provides a solid foundation and the procedures necessary for successful Project Management. It consists of eight sections. Sections 2, 3, and 4 discuss the choices, limitations and expectations from the viewpoint of the owner, the design professional, and the contractor.
