Project Delays & Cost Overruns

“If you do not change direction you may end up where you are heading”

Lao Tzu

In an industry that suffers from cycles in cost cutting, you cannot afford to operate inefficiently.

A huge proportion of operational delays and cost overruns are a result of:

  • Inadequate planning
  • Ineffective project management
  • Poor portfolio management

When different disciplines work in isolation without a unified plan inefficiencies are increased.

Attention to effective project planning is imperative regardless of business cycles. Consistency and transparency across an organisation is always required.
