When kicking-off my participation in a project, a project assessment is performed to check the real project conditions against the project sponsor and critical stakeholders expectations. A very well -defined roadmap is agreed with a timeline and milestones to be reached. The project sponsor, stakeholders and the team are the central focus of my efforts in order to drive the projects to the financial and social impact success. Reduce the project complexity by removing several layers of technical, commercial and legal interferences is the best approach when dealing with large projects and public-private partnerships (PPPs).
The goals of my services are tailor-made and agreed with the investor at the end of the project assessment phase. Commonly my efforts are focused on establishing and ensure the project costs, the milestones schedule and the execution scope under the quality standards agreed. Projects that are under execution, independent of the jurisdiction, are managed with zero tolerance to unsafe conditions.
When seated in a board, in order to secure the investor’s interests or simply advising the portfolio company, the goal is to set and review the mission and purposes of the organization, select and evaluate the performance of the chief executive and give support and guidance on the strategic and organizational planning.
The main result is to have the investor interests protected and guaranteed. Highly complex environments, such as Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, are capable to bring above average financial and social returns on large-scale projects, such as infrastructure and power projects, and taking care of the people involved in the project, we are capable to achieve and secure these results together.
