Project Management Tips

April 15th, 2008 Comments off

This will be a series of project management tips that I have learned over  my 30 plus years of doing industrial project management. You will not find these tips out there in the PM world. The intent is to help keep you out of trouble as it is much easier to get into trouble than it is to get out. These are just an example of some of the tips that I provide in my PM workshops.

The first tip I want to talk about is to treat all your projects as if they will end up in a legal court case or have a claim against them. This applies to contractors (including engineering consultants) and vendors. When you first start a project everyone is excited and happy as this will be the best project ever. You have a working relationship with your contractor(s) and the process starts smoothly. However, it doesn’t take much for the project to turn sour and animosity to set in. Not all projects turn out this way, but  you can not predict the future so you have to be prepared.
