Box 1528 Fayetteville, AR 72702-1528 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (July 7, 2011) – The role of project manager is one that many in the A/E/P and environmental industry aspire to. But it’s no small task! In a recent article in ZweigWhite’s weekly management publication, The Zweig Letter, author Ernest Burden wrote, “Project managers must be effective leaders who can motivate their project teams, as well as create and maintain a work environment that encourages innovation, productivity, and responsiveness to the client’s objectives.” Burden is the author of a book for those looking to integrate the skill and science of managing projects, Successsful Project Management for A/E/P and Environmental Consulting firms. The book was released by ZweigWhite today, July 7, 2011. Burden, principal of AEC Advisors, Inc., began his career as an architect, and is now an author, editor and consultant. He has been involved in the A/E/C community for over 40 years and has written numerous A/E industry books. The book illuminates the complex science of successfully managing projects in today’s challenging A/E environment. It will help anyone be one of the best and learn how to balance the physics of a project with team chemistry to identify clients’ expectations, set achievable goals, assign resources, oversee and control logistics like schedule and budget, monitor and evaluate progress, anticipate problems, and offer creative solutions. With numerous examples, checklists, case studies, and even scenarios presented from the client’s viewpoint – a valuable perspective not often found in management books – the book is an enjoyable read and valuable learning tool.
