Part of: Preparing for Project Management: A Guide for the New Architectural Engineering Project Manager in Private Practice


Project agreements and early project planning should be accomplished at the same time. However, it seems that project agreements are often developed prior to any definitive project work plan. Some of the time, there is no work plan. Sometimes there is little more than a brief concept. The preparation of a work plan will be addressed in the next section. Again, this part of the work is not paid for but is included in overhead. However, it is a very important activity. A successful project may hinge on a well written agreement in tandem with a good work plan.
