This year, working with Keysource HR manager Rosalind Owens, I was asked to review our company values. This was a first for me and to be honest it’s not really in my skill set. Creating a set of values seemed to fall squarely into the unknown waters of ‘fluffy emotional marketing’ rather than my comfort zone of fact-based evaluation and solution delivery.
Having a detailed pre-construction phase undertaken before starting the design and build or upgrade of a data centre facility has a number of major benefits, however many organisations choose to sidestep this part of the process. In my experience this is a false economy that can often result in, at best, a lack of consistency of supplier responses and a loss of control by the client; and at worst significant additional costs and a major impact to project delivery, especially within live environments.
