The Construction Industry Needs More Than Collaboration in Project Management

DOWNLOAD WHITE PAPER:

Overview

In recent years, “collaborative” has become a buzzword used to describe project management styles and to depict a major project software capability. When embarking on a construction industry project, collaboration on its own is only a piece of the puzzle. Project management cannot succeed with collaboration alone; to achieve success in project management we need quantifiable and analytical methods to determine the status of our projects and programs. Creating expectations followed by executing and measuring results is an absolute necessity within the realm of project management– Without it, projects are sure to fail.

“Project management cannot succeed with collaboration alone; to achieve success in project management we need quantifiable and analytical methods to determine the status of our projects and programs.”

Abstract

Today, the construction and capital projects industry’s challenge is managing the incredible amount of project data and information available at its fingertips to help deliver successful projects. While collaboration is a hot topic, we must remember that project management solutions should not be implemented based upon that capability alone. It must also provide the necessary quantifiable and analytical methods and standards projects require. With the right project management software that incorporates collaboration and effectively collects, structures and integrates information, organizations are better equipped for delivering their capital projects successfully.
