On Budget and On Time: Using the Power of People to Get Projects Done

State departments of transportation have relied on alternative project management methods and on partnerships and alliances to complete an overload of projects on schedule and cost-effectively with limited staff. This article presents an array of practical tips for effective partnerships, covering communication, organization cultures, team dynamics, and more. A case study--the Interstate 15 reconstruction project in Salt Lake City, Utah--provides an example of the successful application of the art of communication to build and sustain partnerships and project delivery.
