This book joins together disclosure, privacy, and secrecy to pursue a greater understanding of how people are both public and private in their interactions. To be social yet autonomous, known yet unknown, independent yet dependent on others is essential to the communicative world. How do people manage these seemingly incongruous goals? This book argues that they actively work at balancing simultaneous needs of being both public and private. It highlights many different ways that people balance their public needs with their privacy needs underscoring the multidimensional nature of balance. The chapters also show that the opposing needs occur within a variety of contexts, from health issues, such as HIV/AIDS, to television talk shows. Readers will discover that avoiding disclosure is a dominant theme. In this way, the authors demonstrate how people balance privacy and secrecy by deemphasizing openness. Taken as a whole, this volume offers a refreshing new look at age-old concerns.

Project Management is a broad subject and there have been many excellent books written on the subject. Some are encyclopedic in content. This book is not. Project Managers have little free time and they don’t generally spend it reading books on Project Management. Project Management – The Secrets of Success is a book of important topics and guidelines for the Project Manager - a book that can be read while traveling or referred to as an issue arises. Project Management is THE critical skill in the engineering and construction world. Most Presidents and senior managers of engineering and construction companies are former project managers. Even in the Owner organizations, excellent project managers position themselves for senior management roles. Why? Because managing a project is fundamentally business management – starting, staffing, running and shutting down a business - excellent preparation for company management. Project Management can be boiled down to 10 Project Management Commandments. Following these ten commandments alone will not make a Project Manager successful; but, poor performance in any of these areas usually results in failure. 1. Safety – first, last and always 2. Contract – know it – follow it 3. Quality – good jobs have high quality 4. Schedule – no excuses 5. Basic Project Data – verify, then use 6. Be Completion Driven 7. Quantities – manage them 8. Money – guard it – ours or the Client’s 9. Lead – clearly show the way 10. Client Relationship – you have the responsibility Project Management – The Secrets of Success expands each of these topics in detail. The book is not a primer on Project Management; it builds on the knowledge of experienced Project Managers and provides them guidelines and coaching to improve project performance. Project Management – The Secrets of Success also discusses the skills necessary to become an excellent Project manager. They include: · Leadership - giving proper direction and following progress on a detailed level. · Insight – being able to understand the status and direction of a project from limited data – relying on experience and intuition to root out problems. · Consensus building - seeking alignment from your team and with your Client. Getting all needed input before making decisions. · Communication skills including oral reporting, written communications and presentation skills. · Building excellent Client relationships. · Project risk - how to recognize it and how to mitigate it. · How to keep a project on schedule. · Project costs - understanding them in detail and monitoring and correcting poor cost performance. · Knowledge of contracts - what the key issues are and how to roll down the prime contract terms to subcontractors and vendors. · Understanding construction and being able to drive engineering, design and procurement to support the field. · Knowing and championing Safety - in design and in execution. · Being an outspoken advocate for Quality. Every experienced Project Manager will benefit from the lessons of Project Management - The Secrets of Success.
