This is to ensure that the necessary raw materials and physical resources are available at each stage, and that the workforce on site has the right skills for the scheduled work. The project management team will need to produce a series of planning documents that can be accessed throughout the project. Each member of the project management team must know their role and responsibilities, including which sections of the workforce they will be directly managing.
This document serves the purpose of critically analysing the differences that exist between managing construction projects and I.T Projects
The stages of the construction project management differ from the stage of business management, in several respects. For example, construction management first stage is the resolution; it is necessary to identify requirements relating to the project by the owner and choose a consult to help in completing a preliminary assessment for the project and the feasibility, also the impact of its presence in the economic and social development areas. However, planning is the first stage on
| Manage the project and contribute to the project requirements. Authorize any changes to the project. Oversee all project work as it relates to the project plan, budget, and schedule. Manage communications between all parties involved.
The project manager will focus all the attention of managing the scope, budget and schedule of the project such that the risks are minimized and the outputs are maximized. The reports at every stage are essential for analysis of the project phase. Regular reviews and testing for each module will determine the re-evaluation of project such that the processes are controlled and monitored at every phase. Plus the soft skills help a PM to follow up and follow through each task while understanding the requirements from the business stakeholders. A thorough market research would give an analysis on the qualitative and quantitative research evaluation which will ensure any concerns that can be captured
According to Career Cruising, in the next ten years there will be a 6% growth for individuals in this profession. There is a greater increase for specific areas of construction and it all depends on the location someone is willing to work. Locations for a construction project manager can be just about anywhere and there are lots of possibilities if a person is willing to travel. There are local opportunities to stay around the area but many larger companies work nationwide and if an individual wanted to travel, these types of opportunities are available for this career. For example, my brother did a couple of internships with a construction company called Kiewit, who does work worldwide, and he did a lot of traveling to different jobs throughout the summers when he worked there. My brother also did an internship with Market and Johnson and now he works full time for them. There are local companies who stay around this area but this convenience can vary in price and it all depends on what type of company one wants to work
According to the Associated General Contractors of New York State, “The construction industry is the second largest employer in the US, second only to all government employees including the armed forces.” (Associated General Contractors of New York State, 2014). This is a staggering number. However, in spite of this, the industry has suffered a decline in labor productivity beginning in the 1960’s that has continued its trend since that time and seems to be in no hurry to reverse its course (Teicholz, 2013). This paper will explore how Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) can be implemented by the construction industry to solve this issue by greatly decreasing (or even in some cases, eliminating) low productivity and waste, time/cost
Construction projects are always unique and risks raise from a number of the different sources. Construction projects are inherently complex and dynamic, and involving multiple feedback processes. A lot of participants – individuals and organizations are actively involved in the construction project, and they interests may be positively or negatively affected as a result of the project execution or project completion. Different participants with different experience and skills usually have different expectations and interests. This naturally creates problems and confusion for even the most experienced project managers and contractors.
A substantial majority of projects in the United States construction industry fail to meet their cost and schedule objectives, in line with Construction Industry Institute (CII) research.
The job requirements for a project manager are extensive. One of their first priorities is in preparing and negotiating expense estimates, operating budgets, and work timetables. They are responsible for the working operations and status of expensive machinery, that may include, mobile cranes, towers, earth moving equipment, heavy trucks, and service vehicles. Their responsibilities include the selection, and hiring, of laborers and subcontractors, as well as, the continual supervising of on-site construction personnel and activities. It is the project manager who must respond to any work delays, or emergencies. In addition, project managers must make sure
Not all construction projects are same in size. Every project varies in size and scope with different approaches, different technologies but they all share the common issues when it comes to managing a project team . A project team often involves members of different backgrounds, specializations, skills and
This is a serious problem which indicates that over the past 40 years, construction projects have required significantly more field work hours over cost of contract. In other words, the construction industry seriously lags other industries in developing and applying labour saving ideas

Typically, in the construction industry many resources are drawn into a complex building project. Clients, financiers, government, architects, engineers, project managers, consultants and other stakeholders each play a part in producing the end product. However, their interests are varied and can be at cross-purposes. This typically results in a fractured and disjointed approach to building.
* Scope Verification: Another important work to be carried out by the construction management are controlling of production process. They control and maintain the quality of the product. It is their duty to schedule inspections and testing of the work that is completed. The control of non conforming products is also in their hand. They undertake corrective and preventive measures for the project to carry out smoothly and on time.
