You have just won the big project! So now what? I believe that Effective Project Management is Key to Your Success. Once the bid is won, your work isn’t finished.  Now it’s time to put on your other hat, and position yourself for a successful project.

Position Yourself for Success through Effective Project Management

Effective Project Management is Key to Your Success in other ways also. I will discuss how you can better protect yourself legally, as well as operationally. One of the best tools to take advantage of is the Pre-construction or Pre-painting meeting. This is where you can set the tone for a positive relationship. It too is the time you can position your team to succeed, and I will show you how this can be accomplished. We will go over many common sense items, and several things that are not so obvious.

    Great website and blog Lynn!

    I’m sorry, but you haven’t said where these items will be covered ? Is it in a book, or cd ? Interested but you haven’t said much past talking about the pre painting meeting.

    Send me an email if you get a chance. I would like some more information because I have just won my first “big project” as you say and looking for some guidance on the next steps to take. Also wondering if your products would have relevance in Canada.
