CNST 520 - Construction Negotiations


Prerequisites: Graduate standing or permission of instructor
Delivery: Online
No construction project is ever built to the plans and specifications generated at the start. No set of plans and specifications ever accurately reflects what the owner had in mind. Conflicts are inevitable in the construction process. Every project participant must realize these facts and develop ways to resolve the conflicts to produce a good product with the maximum amount of satisfaction on the part of all participants. This course will evaluate techniques that can produce the product and the satisfaction quotient desired. Topics include: alternate methods of dispute resolution; methods of managing client expectations; professional practice and ethics; teambuilding methods; common characteristics of successful leaders; a consideration of personal network systems; communication in its many forms; goal alignment - how to do it and why it is important; managing meetings; and, current project successes and failures.
