Sometimes, when it comes to Project Management "best practices," attention given to the most mundane of a manager's daily tasks can make a huge difference in the overall success of a project. This principle was dramatically illustrated in the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals' (ASBCA) recent decision in Dick Pacific Constr. Co., Ltd, which serves as an important reminder to contractors that keeping consistent and detailed daily logs is essential and can mean the difference between winning and losing a given case. This ASBCA decision is a useful reminder to contractors on all projects, public or private, of the importance of keeping accurate daily logs.
