The resident engineer must possess significant talents other than the necessary technical abilities that qualify him for his position. The tactful and diplomatic handling of project interrelationships not only can resolve construction problems but can forestall them as well. Forming successful on-the-job relationships are covered together with a discussion of personnel introductions, meetings, and other techniques for developing project harmony. The resident engineer's role as an intermediary, promoting the orderly and expedient conduct of the work, is highlighted.
