Praise for "Faster Construction Projects with CPM
" A] very strong addition to our knowledge about construction
contracting and project scheduling." Matt Stevens, Author,
"Managing a Construction Firm on Just 24 Hours a Day "
"This is a seminal work which will shape this industry for
generations to come." Keith Pickavance, Senior Vice President, Hill
"Momentum Management may well be the most practical and
straight-forward concept devised to date." Mike Hopkins, Vice
"I felt that the subject matter and style were appropriate for
any scheduler who has "been in the trenches" more than a couple of
times. After twenty plus years of scheduling, I was pleased to find
that I was not out in a foxhole by myself." Ted Douglas, President,
"I told my boss that we will need to purchase a copy for every
scheduling person at Alpha, due to the technical and practical
accuracy and clarity." Chris Carson, Corporate Director of Project
Controls, Alpha Corporation
"I was glad to see this in print. Many people monitor a schedule
strictly by float and don't understand that there is so much more
involved in the analysis of a schedule that just looking at float
or even earned value. I would recommend this book to all of the
classes that I teach." Jeff Huneycutt, US Army Corps of Engineers,
"I am just glad that I am not alone in the way I see the project
controls business. I would like to buy a couple copies of the book
for the staff to reads." Craig Olsen, President, Scheduling
"The book makes some very good points that the novice or even
seasoned practitioner should read." Keith Howard, Motorola Inc.
"Just two weeks ago I was asked to recommend a quality book on
scheduling practices. I suggested Murray's, even though the
requestor doesn't work in construction. It's the book I turn to
when I want to know the 'right' way to assemble and manage a
schedule as well as the reasoning behind that practice. It also
provides a candid look at the weaknesses of our current processes
and recommendations for an improved path forward." David Kaiser,
President, Schedule Associates
