PA’s Colm Reilly, head of Government Practice at PA Consulting Group, has been quoted in the National Audit Officer report Commercial skills for complex government projects.
On the subject of generating optimal performance of people and the team Colm says: “The problem is not that no one knows what to do. It is well known. It is just not done systematically or, sometimes, not done at all. The answer to improving commercial skills is to create the framework of conditions that allow a rigorous and consistent focus on the basics of project management and their implementation.”
