ONE VIEW, THOUSANDS OF WORKERS, DOZENS OF TEAMS
If there’s one thing that frustrates a project manager, it’s having to track down who’s doing what, where, and when. Some would say that’s their job. A more informed view might say it’s not the best way to use real talent, and that admin never advances planning, or building, and rarely makes a difference to efficient operations.
BUILDING PEOPLE SKILLS
E.ON New Build and Technology knows all about efficiencies. This is an organisation that handles more than 100 engineering and construction projects every year. It’s an organisation that depends on people skills to plan, build, and operate a range of project types ranging from the smallest– such as power transformer maintenance – to country-changing projects like nuclear power plants.
THE SOUND OF EFFICIENCY
Disrupted only by the tap of a keyboard, or the swoosh of a mouse.
If you visit an E.ON office you’ll be struck by the atmosphere of calm and tranquillity
where the studious silence is broken only now and then by the tap of a keyboard or an utterance of ‘Well done!’ as another project comes in on time and on budget, and another, and another.
There’s no panic, no cursing, no crises. The problems have been foreseen and accommodated. Every eventuality has been covered. Changes are easily taken care of.
REDUCING PROJECT RELATED RISKS
“For a solution to manage very large projects, such as power plant construction, as efficiently as possible, we chose Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management”
The key success factors come from creating accurate project performance forecasts to meet hand-over dates and avoid project budget overruns. The sublime tranquillity of E.ON’s offices comes from knowing that every time a change request is foreseen, and avoided
...it’s another $10,000 to $100,000 per request saved. That’s the industry average.
In not incurring such costs it’s why E.ON has a very content team of project managers.
