In this book, Total Construction Project Management, Second Edition, Authors Ritz and Levy have made an excellent job of assembling what you need to know to be successful in the construction project management industry. We highly recommend it for those who want to comprehend what serious project management in a well-established industry is really all about.
In the introduction to this article, we noted that the authors observed:
"If one is going to practice project management within an industry, it is a good idea to define the arena in which management techniques will be applied. We really need to know just what business we are in to evaluate our present goals, find out where we have been, and see where we hope to go from here."
This is a sentiment that we too heartily endorse.
