- First- in planning, it's not about a single move, it's the strategy of how one move will affect the next.
- Second- make necessary changes pending the opponent's move (change orders, rfi's, discrepancies, environmental/weather changes)
- Third- protect your "King" (safety, budget, schedule) while playing the game (building).
- Finally- Checkmate! by eliminating the opponent's King (re-work, production loss, discrepancies, and any other roadblocks) to accomplishing the goal that was set at the beginning of the game!
Great construction leaders are like chess players.
