Different Perspectives of Project Management in A/E/C Industries

Project Management is the practice of leading the work of a team of professionals to achieve goals and meet success criteria at a specified time, and for a specified duration. The primary challenge is achieving all of the project goals within the given constraints, while staying agreeable with a project budget, and schedule. From the perspective of the Architect, the Engineer, and the Builder come slightly different views of these roles, all with the same desired outcome. This "car talk" style roundtable discussion will explore these issues in this age of speed, accuracy, and litigation from the perspective of each, and help each avoid future litigation.

Interestingly, we will be interviewing separately an architect, an engineer, and a builder in a ‘Car Talk’ scenario each with the point of describing their objectives and their format of Project Management.  It seems each profession has different objectives and different ways of achieving this/these objectives while staying dedicated to the team environment and the desired schedule.
