Having a top-notch engineer is critical for the success of any construction project. Here at Campbell Construction, we also feel that it’s essential for an engineer to have a working knowledge and understanding of project management.
Why is this so important? In an article for Engineering.com, author and engineer Christian Knutson identifies five key reasons why engineers need to understand project management in order to do their jobs most effectively. First, it helps the engineer develop a framework of operating procedures. Second, when this framework is applied, it results in consistency. Third, the consistent and high-quality work then leads to a reputation for excellence in your field. Fourth, project management skills in turn develop an engineer’s risk assessment skills. And fifth, it leads directly to professional development and growth, which is always a good thing.
