This extract from my popular Practical Project Management seminar shows me talking about the distinction between project goals and objectives - both vitally important in defining your project from the outset. These are fully described in my books, "Brilliant Project Leader" and, from a perspective of pre-empting project risks, "Risk Happens!" More about this and my other project management seminars at http://mikeclayton.co.uk/a-choice-of-vibrant-seminars/project-management/
Estimating an entire job couldn't be Easier. If you have ever tried to quote a job from a plan,you would know it can be a very tedious task. Normally you would have the plan in front of you with a pencil and a ruler but with BEAMS the whole process just got a lot easier. With CADImage Takeoff you can measure any plan whether it's for a house, electrical work or any other project that has a plan requiring measurements. Estimating a job used to take hours, now it can take significantly less just by clicking around on the screen. Simply load your plan into CADImage Takeoff (whether it be a Bitmap [.bmp], a Portable Network Graphic [.png] or a JPEG [.jpg] file), select the type of measurement you would like to make and you're away. Start clicking on the perimeter of a house to measure the entire floor area, click on the plan to get the length of pipes needed for a plumbing job or count the number of interior doors needed for the house. The possibilities are endless!
