Business executives and project managers are grappling with challenging business environments and 20 years legacy of overrunning projects

  • Recently reported outcome data on 100 of the largest power projects, showed an average of 35% cost overruns, and an average of 25 months delay – Ernst & Young Global, 2016
  • The estimated annual USD 30 billion global capital cost inefficiency, plus ROI production loss, plus dispute cost is “absolute waste”.
  • Progressive management is ready to change business cultures. Clients need to buy-in as primary drivers in their supply chain.
