Value-Add Resourcing

The Directors of JEDCO are pleased to announce the roll out of our Value-Add Resourcing model, in collaboration with strategic alliance partners (AQUIP), and in parallel with last month’s Project Risk Assurance (PRA) announcement.

The Value-Add Resourcing model is built around our Solution Partnering philosophy of Less is More, and as we have said since JEDCO’s inception, it is Time for Change.  Private and Public-Sector organisations have experienced a paradigm shift in how they must plan and execute their projects and investments if they are to remain sustainable.  The project environment we find ourselves in at present is likely to be with us for a while, so there is a discrete need to minimise cost and schedule over run in order to sustain the future of projects and businesses.

Energy, Marine and Infrastructure developments are becoming more and more complex, and are in environments that are unpredictable. Project schedule and cost over runs need to be addressed at the front end, as well as contingencies put in place to manage the inevitability of environmental and political challenges.

If we are to see a resurgence in project opportunities, we need to instil confidence back into the definition, assessment and planning phases of projects, not just beyond FID or solely at point of execution. We need assurance that project management structures have identified key risk factors related to potential cost and schedule over runs, quality issues, CSU and operations, and that these factors have been addressed and assured against key project deliverables.      

JEDCO, AQUIP and I.C.E. teams have been developing a personnel management system, to overlay with those bespoke ‘Project Execution’ applications which were announced on 01st April 2020 Streamlining Decision Making on Projects. The value-add resourcing model will be supported across-borders as and when required, through a trusted network of partners and alliances, who have the processes and infrastructure to provide seamless in-country support, and whose leaders have fully embraced the Solution Partnering philosophy and understand true meaning of value and sustainability.
