What is Construction Management? Why is it important? Why is it interesting? Lisa Sachs' systematic approach to managing complex projects is based on simple common sense. While this book addresses architectural construction projects, the underlying logic is essential and applies to any kind of project.

Lisa Sachs was trained as an architect and is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, but early on in her career she was engaged by project Owners to design buildings for them as an in-house architect and project manager. This professional trajectory led her to become an industry-leading Construction Manager, representing project Owners on several of the largest school construction programs in the United States. She is recognized for her achievements by industry organizations such as the Construction Management Association of America and the American Institute of Architects where she was just recently honored with the distinction of Fellowship, and is a mentor and role model for students and young professionals.
