  • Hi Gilbert, I really like your Slide #5 as you are one of the very few who understand that it "takes assets to create assets" in an organization. However, I would challenge you by saying you've missed a key part and that is the role of the ASSET MANAGERS. If you don't mind going HERE http://www.planningplanet.com/guild/gpccar/introduction-to-managing-project-controls (Free access but you will need to fill in a profile which takes 10-12 minutes) and then scroll down to Figures 1, 2 3 and 4, I think it will give you a little bit more of a perspective than what you've shown in Slide #5. Other than that, great job!!! BR, Dr. PDG, Jakarta
