Seattle was the second worst city in the U.S. for time commuters were stuck in traffic. The University Link Light Rail Extension extended the light rail system 3.2 miles (5 kilometers) through underground tunnels providing relief for roadway congestion. The rail line opened months ahead of schedule, and the project closed US$200 million under budget. This project was a finalist for the 2017 PMI Project of the Year Award. Learn about this awarded project’s challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in this webinar.

This template is an Excel sheet with a pivot table utility report that retrieves data from data tables. By keeping a record of construction project data and information on data tables—and by using pivot tables—we can get back many forms and dashboards, such as a daily and weekly construction report. This zip file contains a sample record and a blank record.
When building a financial institution branch, there may be more than what is captured within the construction plan. This template provides you with the framework to help identify and track the deliverables your internal project team is accountable for. The first worksheet provides you with a mechanism to track and report these internal deliverables. The second worksheet further breaks down each deliverable to provide its details, such as key activities. The third worksheet captures details of the team’s open readiness plan. These worksheets should be modified in detail and accuracy to fit your project’s scope, and can be adapted to fit other projects/industries.
This template is built for construction project control managers who need to keep track of quantities installed onsite and—with the same tool—produce a weekly/monthly report that supplies management with quantitative feedback about project status.

Are you still operating with outdated assumptions and expectations? The stressful process of buying a new home and selling an old one proved to be an enlightening experience in project management and complexity for this practitioner.
Of the many reasons that could cause contractors to experience a project delay or cost overruns, two elements always get this practitioner's attention: ineffective communication and slow decision making. How can this be solved? It all starts with understanding the process.
In order to achieve outstanding results in the implementation of industrial projects, there are two essential concepts: the early involvement of operations in the project for early input on the design; and start-up management to ensure the receiving organization’s readiness for the project. A single point of contact (SPOC) and start-up manager (SUM) can help.
Project management techniques can ensure that a facility closure is completed effectively, with economically, environmentally and socially responsible outcomes.
