Every construction project of any significance these days involves an ever-increasing spectrum of individual professional and trade skills. Consequently, a project can only be achieved satisfactorily through a comfortable working relationship between very many people, with many different personal or collective objectives. In this brief paper I have endeavored to present an overview of project management as a modern approach designed to withstand the vicissitudes of such pressures.

Today's owner who adopts the project management approach to establish a new facility, finds that he avoids becoming directly involved with the time-consuming design and construction details. Instead, the approach enables him to continue to concentrate on his primary on-going profit-making business.
