"This is a timely and important contribution to the practice of
project interface management. It will be useful to both
practitioners and graduate management and engineering students."
--Professor Carl Haas, Department of Civil and Environmental
Engineering, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Because it is a new discipline, few have them. This unique book provides everything needed to implement world-class interface management on projects." --Alan Kendall, Major Capital Project Interface Manager, Global Energy Sector
