Executing a turnkey power project
A major international power corporation had been awarded multi-million dollar power distribution projects in Saudi Arabia across multiple locations.
The projects were in disarray, with significant delays affecting profitability and eroding customer confidence. The company urgently needed to take control and accelerate the projects.
The assignment was handled jointly between the X-PM France and X-PM India offices. X-PM provided a very senior and highly qualified CEO from India.
The Interim manager reviewed existing projects management processes and set new timelines with a system of internal project controls. He provided leadership to multi-national project teams, with a special focus on adhering to group health and safety norms across sites, contractor and supplier management and cost monitoring.
Rigorous monitoring and project controls started showing improved results within the first six months. A sense of ownership grew among the Project Managers across multiple project sites. Client relationship improved as the team became more responsive.
The Client issued completion certificates at the end of the engagement.
