If a project is a project, why are construction and IT projects so different?
Understanding the factors that differenetiate project types can help prepare a project manager for success, even in unfamiliar territory. To illustrate this concept, this presentation will examine two project types (construction and IT projects) to identify some significant differences and a few similiarities and how they result in different project management challenges. The speaker will discuss tips and techniques to manage these challenges.
