Putting down markers

File note from last December:

It is risky to state on the basis of little personal experience and much anecdote, but quality of local supply looks likely to be a major area of risk for the Project. Project management is little understood. Total Quality Management principles and attitudes appear non-existent. Method statements are unknown. ISO standards are rare. A cheery willingness to redo work until it is right is unacceptable for our purposes; the work has to be right first time. The major impact of this will be at the capital build stage of the Project, but to a lesser extent it will affect our work from the earliest stages. Schedule and cost control will be more exacting and consume more resource. Closer attention will need to be given to work in progress, and more elaborate contingencies will need to be developed against possible slippage or non-performance.
