"The Five Rules of Successful Project Management"
Author: Grant, Christopher L.
Published In: Planning, Design, and Construction [Critical Issues in Facilities Management #7]
Date: 1990

Examines 5 major rules that colleges and universities should follow when organizing a major construction project. Some may seem like common sense but the rules are broken so often, with such major consequences, by construction owners who should have known better, that they need to be reviewed.  Covers hiring consultants and contractors, reconciling parties' interests, tailoring contracts for projects, exchanging equally hard considerations simultaneously, and preparing for failure.
