Ir Jamilus Presentation

“The essence of project management is really about delivering value to the stakeholders. Delivering value in project management does not only involve meeting the project objectives in time, budget, quality and scope but also includes the strategic, technical and commercial aspect of the project”. This was what Tan Sri (Dr.) Ir. Jamilus Hussein, President / CEO KLIA Premier Holdings Sdn Bhd had said at the Project Management Seminar, organized by the Cawangan Perancangan Aset Bersepadu on 18 November 2015.

Tan Sri Jamilus pointed out that project management is a combination of art and science working in unison for an ultimate goal of project delivery. Project management is a science as it relies on proven and repeatable processes and techniques to achieve project success; at the same time project management is also an art as it concerns managing and relating to people, requiring the project manager to apply soft skills in situations that are unique for each project.

It is imperative to formulate upfront how the execution processes will take place in making the project becomes manageable. At this juncture, Tan Sri Jamilus stressed the importance of making timely and sound decisions for excellent project delivery.
