0:03 Rick Tomas So what are your plans for 2018? Have you started thinking about how to prioritize and start planning some of your projects?
0:15-1:06 Rick Thomas This is a great time of the year. Typically, things are a little bit down, you got some extra time on your hands. If you were me I would do the rapid control process. So, what does that mean? I would start thinking about key milestones, what’s my critical path and I would try and plan that down to the tasks that we have to really start to build a resource plan. Understand who’s going to need to be on the project and for how long. I would also start thinking about risks. Have I identified a lot of the key risks are the big risks that might be in the project or by different initiatives, what are some of the mitigation plans? Then I’d start coming up with ideas. I think doing a lot of these different exercises will allow you to come into the new year and hit the ground running.
