This article shares the challenges a PM experienced while managing the construction of a 5-star hotel on the Caribbean island of Grenada during the pandemic—and how he navigated through change management to stay on track.
Read how this tenured associate professor, who instructs in construction management at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, considers it his responsibility to develop opportunities for his students to acquire new skills and knowledge in project management.
Addressing the problems inherent in opening new hotels, this paper advocates that hotel owners adopt a complete and well-defined project lifecycle overseen by an experienced project manager. The goals and deliverables for the key phases within this extended new hotel project lifecycle are identified and the main benefits of following this approach are explained. The proposed approach helps optimize the return on investment for each new hotel and maximizes positive cash flows from operations.
Advanced Work Packaging: Achieving Higher Project Productivity And Predictability (Korean Translation)by
AWP (Advanced Work Packaging)는 프로젝트 생산성과 예측 가능성을 높이기 위해 다양한 시공 프로젝트 관점을 효과적으로 조정할 수 있습니다. 이 웹 세미나를 통해 발견 할 수있는 기회를 놓치지 마십시오. 고급 작업 포장 (Advanced Work Packaging)은 프로젝트 설정에서 시작 및 매출액에 이르기까지 프로젝트 수명주기 전체에 걸쳐 계획 및 실행 활동을 적극적으로 조율하여 프로젝트 성과를 향상시키는 혁신적인 규율 된 실행 방식입니다.
Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a work process framework fundamentally based on the idea of thinking with the end in mind. It is designed to allow engineering planning to be driven by construction sequencing.
The General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) Public Buildings Service (PBS) needed better knowledge management (KM) approaches for supporting their building maintenance, leasing, construction, and renovation projects delivered annually across the United States. A national KM team, utilizing a rapid piloting approach, customized preexisting/prepaid software tools to quickly meet their information needs. Read the case study for details about lessons learned and critical success factors.
The approach of this case study is to give a real example of applying the Scrum concepts on a PMO team’s daily operations in the construction industry--and how we can benefit from the flexibility of these practices in that discipline.
En las plantas productivas, la implementación de métodos de mejora y optimización basados en la participación del personal de operación y mantenimiento, a través de grupos de mejora continua, constituyen una fuente de generación de proyectos de ingeniería de planta, cuya implementación, bien gestionada, puede lograr un impacto significativo en el desempeño y resultados de una Planta. ¿Cuáles son las fuentes de generación de estos proyectos y cuales son las claves para poder gestionarlas correctamente y así poder crear y capturar valor para la organización?
Precision planning means demolition projects won't crumble - until they're meant to.
