Just spoke to a ‘flesh eating’ project manager used to running big and complex projects. His work’s dried up. “There’s plenty of money and projects out there – just no willingness to commit or spend. People are only after immediate, bottom-line benefits. Otherwise it’s just about maintaining the status-quo”.
While benefit realisation is a good thing, the knock-on effect of all the jobs associated with cancelled or postponed projects is enormous and, it seems, just beginning to kick-in. Sadly, a nail in the coffin for the PM’s Digital Britain Recovery plans.
