What is arguably the greatest cycle race in the World is underway and I’m sure many are glued to their televisions, while millions more line the roads to cheer on their cycling heroes or just to be part of the atmosphere. Now I’m not a cyclist but I do enjoy seeing the beautiful French scenery and stunning villages and chateaus unfold while cyclists from a host of nations battle up the hills and dodge screaming spectators.
But watching the cyclists I’ve also realised that construction could learn from the race.
So even if cycling isn’t your passion it may be worth watching a few hours of the race, you never know what you could learn. Avid cycling fans now have an excuse for lazing on the couch watching the drama – at least you can say you are learning how to make your project more successful.
But more seriously we can make our projects more successful with a great team, strong support, committed employees, good equipment, the right preparation, excellent planning, hard work, the right systems and honesty and integrity.
What do you think it takes to make a project successful?
