o Integrating the often-fragmented nature of the team in designing and constructing buildings
o Assessing the reengineering trend of reducing in-house facilities and staff in planning, coordinating, and managing a project
o Outsourcing responsibilities to traditional engineering, architectural, and facilities firms as well as program and project management firms
o Comparing traditional design firms and specialty firms - in terms of finding and keeping capable staffs, project scope management, fee and time pressures, and a myriad of other issues
o Communicating effectively within this highly fragmented, specialized, and complex arena
This edition comprehensively outlines the fundamental means to effectively manage and control a project's scope, schedule, and budget.
