New Role: PSMJ Contributing Writer
I’ve joined the team of contributing writers at PSMJ Resources, Inc. I will be contributing articles to their monthly periodicals starting with the June issue. The audience of PSMJ (Professional Services Management Journal) is primarily executives, principals and managers of firms in the A/E/C industry. Established in 1974 and headquartered in Newton, MA, here is how the organization describes itself:
“PSMJ Resources, Inc. is the world’s leading authority, publisher, and consultant on the effective management of architecture, engineering, and construction firms. With offices in the United States as well as the United Kingdom and Australia, PSMJ offers over 150 titles in book, audio, and video format. In addition, the company publishes several monthly periodicals and delivers dozens of seminars, roundtables, conferences, webinars, and in-house training sessions every year for A/E/C professionals around the world. PSMJ’s sought-after consulting expertise covers a range of critical business areas such as strategic planning, project management, valuation, succession planning, and mergers & acquisitions.”
My contribution to the June issue is entitled “Make Change Clear” and offers some simple strategies for avoiding confusion in the construction change process. I write in the article that a presence of clarity will produce an absence of confusion. I also acknowledge that change is more or less inevitable, and point out that it’s therefore best to anticipate it. These tenets seem obvious, but not always to all project teams.
So if you are a colleague of mine in the A/E/C industry, I hope you will welcome my articles, read them and perhaps even provide feedback on this blog (enter a comment!) wherever you may feel feedback could be merited. I will post articles here as they are published. The June article will be out in mid-May. Meanwhile, you can check out PSMJ’s website at http://www.psmj.com/.
