Build on success

This article offers remarks by four construction industry veterans about the benefits their companies have realized as a result of their investment in project management. Michael D. Bowerman of Cleveland-based AMEC said that their company's best performing projects were the ones run according to the highest level of discipline and protocols. His company has also benefited from an educational partnership with Penn State University that offered a master's degree in project management. James A. Respoli of the U.S. Department of Energy talked about his department's certification program for federal project managers, and about the project management implications of the 'President's Management Agenda.' Also testifying about the benefits of project management were Angela Clark, principal of Colorado-based Capstone Planning & Control Inc., and Julius Gombos of CB Richard Ellis, Global Corporate Systems.
