Project Management is a broad subject and there have been many excellent books written on the subject. Some are encyclopedic in content. This book is not. Project Managers have little free time and they don’t generally spend it reading books on Project Management. Project Management – The Secrets of Success is a book of important topics and guidelines for the Project Manager - a book that can be read while traveling or referred to as an issue arises. Project Management is THE critical skill in the engineering and construction world. Most Presidents and senior managers of engineering and construction companies are former project managers. Even in the Owner organizations, excellent project managers position themselves for senior management roles. Why? Because managing a project is fundamentally business management – starting, staffing, running and shutting down a business - excellent preparation for company management. Project Management can be boiled down to 10 Project Management Commandments. Following these ten commandments alone will not make a Project Manager successful; but, poor performance in any of these areas usually results in failure. 1. Safety – first, last and always 2. Contract – know it – follow it 3. Quality – good jobs have high quality 4. Schedule – no excuses 5. Basic Project Data – verify, then use 6. Be Completion Driven 7. Quantities – manage them 8. Money – guard it – ours or the Client’s 9. Lead – clearly show the way 10. Client Relationship – you have the responsibility Project Management – The Secrets of Success expands each of these topics in detail. The book is not a primer on Project Management; it builds on the knowledge of experienced Project Managers and provides them guidelines and coaching to improve project performance. Project Management – The Secrets of Success also discusses the skills necessary to become an excellent Project manager. They include: · Leadership - giving proper direction and following progress on a detailed level. · Insight – being able to understand the status and direction of a project from limited data – relying on experience and intuition to root out problems. · Consensus building - seeking alignment from your team and with your Client. Getting all needed input before making decisions. · Communication skills including oral reporting, written communications and presentation skills. · Building excellent Client relationships. · Project risk - how to recognize it and how to mitigate it. · How to keep a project on schedule. · Project costs - understanding them in detail and monitoring and correcting poor cost performance. · Knowledge of contracts - what the key issues are and how to roll down the prime contract terms to subcontractors and vendors. · Understanding construction and being able to drive engineering, design and procurement to support the field. · Knowing and championing Safety - in design and in execution. · Being an outspoken advocate for Quality. Every experienced Project Manager will benefit from the lessons of Project Management - The Secrets of Success.

Knowing how to deal with the regulatory issues, understanding the impacts of cleanliness, and recognizing the affect that poor facility layout will have on GMP spaces are only some of the issues an experienced Project Manager must focus on. Completely revised and updated, Sterile Product Facility Design and Project Management, Second Edition provides comprehensive guidance on how to develop and execute biotech and other sterile drug facilities based on current industry best practices. Each chapter highlights a specific issue centered on managing biotech facilities projects in a GMP environment. The author uses real-world examples of common industry practice to lead you through the idiosyncrasies of a biotech project in an effort to answer some of the more common, and often perplexing, questions that can stand in the way of success. You get a mini seminar on each topic covered. Breaking the project life-cycle into four phases, the text takes you through each phase from the Project Manager's viewpoint. Unlike other books that cover design, technology, and validation in general terms, this book addresses the industry specific issues that make biotech facilities so costly and difficult to deliver. It puts the pieces of the puzzle together in a manner that increases your opportunity for success.

Modern organisations are subject to continual change - technologies evolve, organisational structures are modified, people and underlying cultures are transformed. Yet the facilities that organisations occupy are static and can impede the changes that are essential to organisational survival. The response to change in terms of property and support services is often too little too late - leading to facilities that do not support organisational reality. The facilities management team is thus constantly challenged to bridge the gap between what an organisation has and what it needs. Facilities Change Management is a practical evaluation of the management of change for facilities managers and related professions. It considers: the forces of change affecting facilities decisions the obstacles to change at a resource level and human level the effective implementation of change the human aspect of change Each of these is considered in relation to modern facilities management issues. The discussion will enable practising facilities managers, project managers, surveyors, service providers and architects to understand, engage with and manage facilities change effectively at a strategic level. Through real-life case studies it demonstrates the complexities of change and hidden elements of change that may undermine carefully planned projects.
