About This Course

Construction is not a business of individual contributors, it is a people-focused enterprise consisting of many different teams of people coming together for a common purpose. This class is a great example. Students will be evaluated individually on their effort, but required to participate in a team that will need to collaborate outside of the classroom for success. Means and methods of collaboration among team members should be regularly deployed, such as face-to-face and virtual meetings, conference calls, FaceTime, Skype, or Google Docs.
