Is making a cup of coffee a project? How about a sandwich? Taking a shower? Grocery shopping?
Years ago, we had published an article on the difference between tasks and projects and to answer the above questions, it would be good to update and re-publish that articles.
What triggered the current article is a recent post on social media when someone included the following: making a cup of coffee it is a project but getting a cup of coffee from a vending machine is operation.
Most of the above case studies comes from capital projects.
To build on the above and other case studies, SUKAD has developed a 2-day workshop on Case Studies for Capital Projects. The various case studies that we will discuss in that workshop include failed and successful projects and address these projects from different perspectives. These projects also included cost plus and fixed price contracts.
SUKAD is offering the above workshop and others in Cyprus the first week of September! I will be leading a couple of the workshops and my colleague Luc Bauwmans will lead the other two courses.
These workshops would be highly interactive and our principle consultants have direct personal experience in the various topics, which is gained through working on various global projects.
