Exclusive Interview

An Interview with:

Joshua Woolley

Joshua A. Woolley
Director of Project Controls
Granite Construction

What are the main challenges involved in developing and managing an organizational strategy for Project Controls?

A major challenge for us simply comes from constant change. New projects, new personnel, and new acquisitions ensure that we will always have business units at varying levels of project management maturity to train. On top of that is the everpresent opportunity to absorb new technology into our system. The challenge is to balance the constant regimen of training with continuous improvement efforts to enterprise processes, training, and tools. Technology has been advancing faster than anyone’s ability to keep up with it.


"We’ve been doing it for morethan a decade. There is a wonderful entrepreneurial spirit in our operations"
