The England captain, so prolific throughout the rest of the season, had never scored in the opening month of a league campaign, but put that right at the 15th attempt to help Spurs seal the points.
Posted on January 17, by swmoore 12 Comments Wembley Stadium photo: The project took 5 years longer than first estimated and costs were more than double initial estimates.
The stadium uses an innovative steel arch that adds aesthetic appeal, but is also load bearing and minimizes the need for internal support that could have obstructed views within the stadium. As a result the arch improves the quality of the seating.
This lack of historical precedent is often a red flag in accurate project planning. Kol Tregaskes via Flickr There appear to be several reasons for delay in the case of Wembley stadium: Implementation Of An Unprecedented Design The arch implementation was problematic, ultimately the sub-contractor for the arch was replaced midway through the project, and the delay caused further problems.
It appears that the the fundamental issue was attempting a stadium design using a load bearing arch that was novel and untested in previous stadium designs. This is typical of projects that are too innovative, and is one of the reasons that the Denver Airport Baggage System failed.
Projects with formal budgets and timelines are not the place to be prototyping unproven techniques and processes.
Martin Pettitt via Flickr Information Flow and Incentives Information flow around the project was never straightforward and incentives were not well aligned. The contractor was conscious of disclosure to their shareholders and their relationship with the sponsor of the project became so tense as to ultimately end in legal action.
In part, this appears to be related to the fixed price nature of the contract — any delay had immediate implications for profitability. This may have lead to two interesting situations, in which it appears more junior employees were better informed about the project than senior management, perhaps because the implications of delay for so serious for profitability that information was not eagerly shared, note than around this time senior management was making statements that the project was on track: Firstly, a whistleblower within the accounting department claimed to know of project delays months before they were disclosed.
Secondly, in the UK it was possible to place bets on potential delays on the project. Trust, Drugs and Scope Changes As with any project, there are many factors at play.
It is interesting though that on delayed projects, further delays can be self-fulfilling as trust in the critical path diminishes. There was press speculation that workers on site were using drugs.
This claim is hard to substantiate and was never proven. There were some scope changes, though again, it appears that the construction of the arch part of the initial design was a key factor in the delay.
Conclusions Fundamentally, when attempting a unique work item, such as a novel load bearing steel arch as fundamental part of a stadium, it is very hard to estimate cost and duration with precision.
In addition, it appears information flow could have been improved on this project — if junior employees were aware of potential delays and senior management was not, information was clearly not being shared effectively.
