The Good Owner

The “good Owner” concept is an integral part of The COAA Way and is a recurring theme in many of COAA’s Owner Training Institute (OTI) courses, but what is it?

In this session recorded in April 2020 for industry partner CMAA, two COAA leaders – President Allison Muth and Executive Director Howie Ferguson – explain what a good Owner is, why that good Owner is correlated with project success, and ways how to be a good Owner.
