Government agencies tasked with managing environmental site cleanup strive to increase competition and decrease their environmental liabilities. Many utilize contracts that shift cost overrun risk to contractors. Cost-conscious contractors are transitioning more responsibility to project managers, with less budget and fewer staff to execute project support functions previously provided by company resource organizations.
Now many project managers feel like they’re managing their own small business--completely in charge of their destiny. This has led to the ruin of many projects and even the demise of a few proud companies.
