During the heavy equiptment phase of our land clearing and construction of our second phase of development we had a team of people who rotated site duty, to ride herd on the machine operators, set boundaries, and make decisions for the group. Things went the way we wanted em because we had people on site pretty much most the time, at one point a dispute came up, and the machine operator was told, in his burly face, to shut down his machine, or lose the job. NOW! He did, and later very humbly apoligized, to the rather small woman who got in his face in the first place. A learning experience I was told..... After that, there was no questions about who was in charge. It was not always fun or easy to be on the site team and I was impressed with the people who took it on for the group. We managed to do it without hiring an outsider, something that we have foolishly done a lot of. It would have been easier to have a manager run the whole project, it would have been done years (yes that is not a typo, I said years) sooner if we had a dedicated project manager driving things instead of amatuers in their spare time.
