Lesson # 4:
Winning a construction
contract is seldom proof of a higher competitiveness.
As long as there is something called budget overrun and as long as
there is something called budget risk, it is utterly wrong to claim
superiority after winning a contract. It is very confusing to the
ignorant bystander and is sending wrong signals in all directions.
Apparently this type of message is meant for the stock market.
However, it is also telling the organisation and indeed to the whole
community, to relax; We are in good shape, we are on top of the
situation. Without any doubt this type of message has been the
beginning to the end for numerous organisations.
