About CPM Schedules


Don Santos, PSP

I have 29 years and over 3 Billion dollars in construction industry experience, including; Transportation, Commercial, government, industrial, military, and residential projects.

20 years ago as a superintendent I realized that projects were failing – not because of special causes – but do to common causes. In other words, so-called industry Best Practices were causing dreadful project outcomes. The symptoms included:

  • Roller Coaster Trade Momentum
  • Constructive Acceleration 
  • Creative Change Orders
  • Behind Schedule & Over Budget Project Finishes

Now, as a project controls consultant – I specialize in the recovery of troubled projects.

I live in Central Virginia with Mary, my wife of 30 years, and our two youngest children. When I am not working – I can be found on the soccer fields cheering on the kids – who along with our 3 older children and their families are our inspiration.
