We hosted our first Intelligent Projects Forum for 2012 in March at Bentley’s Oyster and Grill. It was a lively and well attended event with guests from industries ranging from defence, logistics, telecoms, banking, leisure and publishing.
We were extremely lucky to have Dr John Henry Looney, an environmental expert, lead the discussion at the event and he challenged the group on how sustainable their organisations are. Drawing on some in-depth examples, John Henry showed that enabling your organisation to measure and also understand the economic benefits of being environmental will help to make changes in your business. Giving individuals financial accountability will always affect performance!
One of the members of the group, James Smith from Nationwide prompted an interesting discussion around the concept of ‘think big, act small’; a subject very close to the hearts of many of our senior project owners.
The Intelligent Projects Forum meets four times a year in a central London restaurant, usually mid week. It is our aim to build a framework for success for projects and reduce the incidence of failing projects that occur today.
