The Big Time

by
Managing any project successfully is all about Team Work combined with years of Accrued Expertise. It is an asset to have an educational background that compliments your field of expertise but "education" without "experience" is like an "arrow" without a "bow." You can never make a perfect shot with a temporary arrow unless you have a permanent bow called: "Life's Experience." Remember, you can never teach experience but you can always teach from experience.

Say "Yes" to Project Success

PM Community & Networking

This project management community has proven to be a great community in many ways, not only education & knowledge sharing wise but also in terms of Networking. 

I've met so many people in person through this community, I interacted with a lot virtually and learned a lot from others. One good recent example is the "Haiku for Project Managers" by Robert Prol.

Robert took project management to another level by defining "The Big Picture" in a few words that are full of deep meanings, rich in experience and in many cases are full of humor. This unique balance between all the latter is great. I did not know what Haiku's were until Robert introduced this form of poetry to me. By time, I became a big fan of his Haiku and he in fact guided me how to write them. 

Robert published his first book recently "Haiku for Project Managers" and included words of praise from some of his colleagues in this community on the rear cover page and it was my pleasure to be one of those contributors. 

This is an example of what makes this community a great one. You contribute, you help, you learn, you network, you meet people, they motive you and you motivate them.

Thanks for your efforts Robert and congratulations for your new book. 

Always Remember: You won't understand the abashed power of a community until you're a part of one.

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) in Construction

       

 

 

 

 

         

 

        

 

 

Recently, many companies are adopting the IPD approach in lieu of the traditional Design-Build for the following reasons: 

  1. Has as proven to successfully integrate people, systems, business structures and different practices into a process that collaboratively binds the talents and insights of all parties to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste and maximize efficiency through all phases of design and construction.
  2. Is the emerging approach to organize project teams in order to achieve lean construction at a time when the industry is searching for ways to eliminate waste, cut costs, improve productivity, and create positive outcomes. 
  3. Allow Owners and Development Managers to effectively balance the project options to meet their business enterprise goals.
  4. Allow Construction Managers to contribute their expertise in construction techniques early in the design process which will result in improved quality and financial performance.
  5. Allow Designers to benefit from the early contribution of the CM resulting in an optimized design.

Everyone always complain that projects are running on tight schedule and time is not enough - Well, time will never be enough if projects are not planned and managed properly. 

Always Remember:  The bad news is Time Flies but the good news is you're the Pilot ! - "Michael Altshuler"

Tokyo Sky Mile Tower

This is a very interesting project so I thought of sharing it with the community:

This super-tall building would not only become the world’s tallest building, but will be twice the height of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai as it is set to reach a height of 1,700 m and host up to 55,000 people in Tokyo bay, an inlet south-east of the Japanese capital.
