Ahmed Adnan-Nasr

Project controls manager, WSP

"Project management attracted me so much, I changed my career path; from architect graduate, through construction management, into the project management profession. My current position is a result of deep experience of project management which allowed me to overview projects from a different angle and dive further into project management knowledge to establish the success factors of the project, giving the project a greater chance of success."
