This book presents my personal thoughts and opinions on the management
aspects of total construction management garnered over 45 years
of executing a broad range of capital projects around the world. It
stresses the practical side of construction management normally encountered
in completing a construction contract.

The goal of the book is to focus on the mental side of construction
management rather than the technology side of the business. In my review
of the literature on construction management, I have found few,
if any, books devoted to the everyday management of construction projects.
With the possible exception of the computer, construction management
is relatively independent of technology. Actually, developing
construction management and technology skills are two independent
but parallel paths to total construction management.
The material is generic enough for the reader to adapt the practices
to any of the diverse facets of the construction environment.
The management methods espoused in this book may call for learning
new skills, techniques, styles, and changing your way of thinking
acquired from past practices. They are designed to give a construction
manager the essential tools to survive and prosper in a highly
competitive environment. Remember, no manager, athletic coach, or
businessperson ever succeeded without drilling the fundamentals
into his or her team
