Part 1

Project management for built environment businesses — The 4 pains (and how to cure them) 

Welcome to part one of our new series on project management. In this five-part series, we’ll focus on the key challenges architecture, engineering and construction design (AEC) businesses face when managing design projects for the built environment. 

Starting here with the main pain points we all face, in coming editions we’ll break these out and talk about why they’re important, their AEC-specific issues, and most importantly, how to solve them. 

What’s in the guide?


Portfolio planning — how to ensure you have enough staff for your work, and enough work for your staff, to meet the objectives and goals of your business as a whole



Project setup — the ability to quickly establish a meaningful skeleton of project information that will grow the body and muscle of the project in the right way


Resource and task management — the features of your management and reporting tools needed to ensure the anticipated utilization of your staff is achieved


Project performance — the importance of measuring your projects’ progress through time, budget, and profit — in real time
