My blog: beyond project controls
Behind Project Controls
I wish present my blog “beyond project controls” Why this title? Project controls has so many implications that it is difficult to mark the borders; however it expands continually, like any other discipline. Controlling a project involves many processes and a “project controls system” has implications with organization, business policies and, virtually, with all project management processes and disciplines.
An example: the importance to manage and improve contractual relationships, a new parameter in addition to those traditional of time, cost, quality.
“Beyond project controls” also deals about topics “on the border” like float mapping (my next post in progress), delay claims management and other traditional major topic like integrated project controls system and all subsets that it includes.
To conclude the introduction to this blog, I wish express my perception about the evolution of project controls; I believe our discipline should become more focused on “strategic project management” giving emphasis to processes of strategic project planning, as well as to methods and approaches targeted to a better integration with other project management processes, in order to enhance capability of the Owner as well as of the Contractors, with their respective needs of project management.
Good reading and thank you in advance for your comments,
