Five Principles of Construction Project Management--The Intro

No matter the size of your company or project, construction project management is inevitably a massive undertaking. From managing the trades to scheduling resources, there are a lot of moving parts for a project manager to juggle. But it doesn't have to be a nightmare.

With the right tools for managing your construction projects, you can consolidate all those moving pieces into one place. That might look like an easy-to-use tool for digital pull planning or a customizable cloud-based app for all your project management needs.

Once you have the tools in place, then it's a matter of running your operations based on a set of straightforward principles: starting with a strong plan, managing resources effectively, scheduling for success, managing risk and creating budget accountability

We just got back from presenting our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” at EMPOWER 2018. And it was everything we hoped it would be. In fact, it was one of the most highly attended EMPOWER conferences ever and we were pleased that our session was so highly rated. For those of you who couldn’t attend, we wanted to share a quick snapshot of what we talked about. (We're excited because we do love to have a little fun when we present important content.)


No matter what side of the Force you find yourself on, it’s become clear that Quickbase is the best construction project management platform in the universe. It’s powerful, flexible, and super easy to use.
