Could you provide to us insight about the emerging global trends in the project management space?
Though the world is accelerating towards Smart Technology, people still remain the center of all activities and human relations. Hence, technological advancements along with the best of Engineers are what the trend is and will be for many years to come.
What is the need and importance of project management in large capital projects? In what way your company can provide holistic solutions in managing large capital projects in India?
It is not very rare that many large-scale projects go out of track at some point. Unless there is one single chord that holds all activities of the project together, the number and scale of activities are most likely to differ from the project plan. It is in such cases that Project Management becomes extremely crucial. Our team gets involved in the project from day one up to the project handover stage so that all activities are carried out smoothly. Vishva has a qualified and experienced team of professionals who have taken many large scale projects to successful completion. Since Vishva has an in-house team of Architects, Engineers and Safety Professionals, a holistic and collaborated solution is given to each client at every stage of the project. In addition to controlling the day to day activities, Vishva team will foresee the probable deviations in project execution and take mitigative measures well in advance. Vishva goes beyond playing the role of a typical PMC and support the Client in overall Project Execution.
