131231-pmwj18-wideman-IMAGEIn Part 2 of this 200-year-old Hwaseong Fortress project, our Guest Young Min Park dives deeply into the project records of the day to discover how this project was managed. Part 2 concludes with a set of case study questions for discussion.

We still get asked: What are The Origins of the Project Management Body of Knowledge, when did the PMBOK start and why is it different from ordinary Operations Management? Musings has the answers.

In Papers, we review the recent update of George J. Ritz and Sidney M. Levy’s book: Total Construction Project Management, 2nd. Edition. The original was written in 1994 and much has changed since then. It is written from the perspective of an on-site construction manager in the typical North American environment. It is very detailed and very thorough.

If you are looking for answers, guidelines or templates, check out Max’s Issacons – “Issues and Considerations” – that are presented in bullet form for quick and easy reference by project managers.
