It is 2020, there appears to be a serious absence of understanding on the various roles and responsibilities within a project, especially when delivering radio networks.
The remarkable paradox is that a client’s inability to untangle subjective schemas from objective reality, and their inability to accurately assume or understand, in an attempt to save time and costs, does the absolute opposite. It delays projects and it increases the overall costs of the project, anywhere from 10% – 200% – The radio network version of the Opal Tower.
The purpose of this presentation is to provide guidance around the importance of having the correct structure and lines of reporting. The principal focus will be on the responsibility and relationship between the Project Engineer, Installation Contractor and Maintenance Technician. A client initiated breakdown of the relationship between these parties is the greatest risk to a project’s successful completion, as it causes project programme delays and variations, and departure from the key business and operational requirements.
