Arjen de Graaf: ‘I became the Programme Manager for ‘Projects in control’ in May. ‘The goal of this programme is to ensure that at BAM Infra our projects are 'in control', i.e. that the results comply with the frameworks and preconditions that have been defined for the project. And that the behaviour of (key) players supports this’. This is quite a lengthy explanation of how we carefully consider whether we will, and/or can, take on a project, including its successful implementation and maintenance. Basically, it is about whether we achieve our previously established goals together. The goal must be clear (i.e. what are we trying to achieve?) and the road to get there requires process frameworks and high-class people who really do it together and make good on our ambition. It is important that we learn together (and record what we have learnt), use each other's knowledge, and start working even more transparently. This calls for an active attitude and realising that, for example, admitting when there is something that you do not know is not a sign of weakness but a strength.
