Success is Not Final and Failure is Not Fatal
The construction business is TOUGH! There will be years that go by where it seems you are on top of the world. There will be “perfect storms” where you have a bad project, a dip in the economy or lose a critical member of your team.
Two Planning Dimensions
Some of the impacts you see on a project are not as clear as a design change, conflict, or obviously changed condition. Some impacts, such as poor project sequencing or congested work areas are hard to notice if you don’t have good tracking systems.
Lean Principle - Stop if Necessary
All construction projects will run into some degree of problems. It is how the project team chooses to manage these problems that ultimately determines the outcome of the project.
