Understanding How Construction - Project Managers, PM's and Certified Project Management Professionals work (PMP) Workers think and some of the reasons why they do what they do, which can take you by surprise, will help you run your construction business smoother and improve your bottom line profits because as we know There Is no money in Chaos.
"If You Know The Answers - The questions will not bother you"
Professional Construction Project Managers - Thinking patterns are the opposite a well-trained construction worker or computer network technician. Their comfort zone is defined by the following:
If it isn’t broke, how can I ensure it stays that way?
When it breaks, I fix it, then I look for the root cause, and work on that
I maintain it so that it does not deteriorate into an emergency
Everybody is my client; I work for the internal and the external client
When I have to fix things, I must not have done my job right in the first place
I gain recognition from knowing things are running smoothly and predictable
My clients are important; the world revolves around them
I don’t know everything, so I ask lots of questions to uncover problems and opportunities
I delegate responsibility to those who can handle it and I guide them to success
I read instructions, because somebody else learned it the hard way, and wrote about it
Everything under my control is my responsibility; therefore I empower myself to fix it
Construction Project Managers loathe unpleasant surprises; so I seek to eliminate unpleasant surprises
When a serious problem arises I work with the team to develop a plan before it gets out of control
Finally, I don't reinvent the wheel; I find who is doing things right and copy their success
The Professional Construction Project Manager - Is conditioned to avoid emergencies by being proactive and to have systems in place to deal with emergencies when they arise. After the emergency has past the effective Construction Project Manager evaluates the root cause of the emergency and implements change in the system to avoid a repeat performance.
They Understand A Key Part - Of what they do to remove obstacles and temptations that keep construction workers technicians from peak performance, run interference for them when they screw up and make sure they get recognition and credit when the project goes well.
