Description

This session discussed how the companies were able to tackle and successfully complete the often complex projects which they bid for and won. How did they recruit and train their technical personnel to meet the technological capabilities needed for each project? How did they organize their technical personnel, by project, by discipline or by functional organization? What project management techniques were used to plan and staff the various tasks needed to carry out the projects? How did they adjust to changes in the requirements or to unforeseen problems? How did they insure that quality was not short-changed while schedules were maintained? What was the nature of the operational interaction with different customers and markets?
