Titanic - lessons for modern projects
Posted by APM on 18th Mar 2011
Mark Kozak-Holland recently started his second tour of APM branches with his Titanic lessons for modern projects presentation being given in the Fujitsu building, London. Mark brings to light some of the misgivings on the design of the Titanic, cost saving errors and bad construction recommendations which resulted in the tragic loss of many passengers and crew of the ship.
Although this project started in 1909, Mark was able to relate some of the decisions made then to many projects of today and it is very much a lesson learnt but never preached or taught. Comments of thought provoking and extremely interesting were made together with how easy it is to relate with some projects today is uncanny.
Mark is a very skilled presenter and his presentation was well received although many would have liked the discussion to have gone on longer as more and more comparisons came to the audiences mind.
