Organisations embarking on new capital projects not only need to find the correct partners (e.g. for engineering or project management services) but also need to ensure they have the necessary resources and skills in their own team. Many organisations either have not done any major projects for a long time or no longer have key personnel who possessed the relevant experience.
Here at IntES our business is projects; we are familiar with the project process, terminology, tools and techniques but we appreciate that often clients do not have this knowledge. Successful projects benefit from the whole team (contractors & clients) understanding each other and able to communicate effectively using common terminology, tools and processes.
Furthermore the future operation of a new line, plant, site or facility needs careful thought and planning alongside the planning for the building of the new facility itself. Who will operate this new facility? What skills do they need? What training do they need?
As part of our Business Consultancy Services, we can provide training in both Project Management and Leadership in Operations Management. Both courses can be modified to provide a bespoke training to fit your organisation’s needs.
