LESSONS FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
D. A.Tambe cited rail projects in Kashmir and the Navi Mumbai airport that are still unfinished despite having been launched years ago. In his view the reasons are inefficient project management, lack of commitment and respect for deadlines. He argued that if the Republic Day Parade can be successful year after year, why can't India’s infrastructure projects complete on time. He urged project managers to focus on RAID, i.e., “risks, assumptions, issues and dependencies.” to be effective.
