What is happening in Pakistan is not only a shame on the face of rescue operations, but also on the worldly-government-controlled preparedness for emergencies.. I need to put it rough and tough; it is not “engineered” enough..!
Apparently, the “Engineers” mind set is greatly different from other professionals or administrators.. The same was in Katrina, when was confused by FEMA administrators, but rescued by Army Engineers.. in Dubai, when boomed up by Engineers, then collapsed by Accountants.. Now in Pakistan as the chaos spread by run-away Politicians, and No engineers to restore sense of order.. Maybe they should revisit the curriculum of emergency workers worldwide.. By the way, if you would survey around, "Engineers" are the fewest caliber among NGOs and Emergency workers worldwide.. I remember back in Sudan in 1990, among IDPs, I was wondering why most of the aid staff are performing irrational scope breakdown, operating in a lengthy sequence or missing the logic of "Structure"..
The recent global turbulences and gaps of dissatisfaction; had pointed to the necessities of integrity, experience, innovation and visionaries to sustain any success. People need is to work on the basics; where scope is comprehensively auditable, procurement is fairly just, and governance is critically addressed. During the last few years, both government and business endeavors were packed by eloquent statements; yet could not establish sanctuaries against market extremism, surprises and/or communication violence. Confronting the overwholmed consuming trends, breaking the cycles of urban frustration, restructuring the financial maturity, and restoring both public and professional confidence are the imminent road mapping for any public strategist, planner and/or executive.
Always, there is a need for a reliable tool to turn colorful pretty pictures, concepts and wish-lists into constructible forms and realities. Not only to taste and visualize the futuristic themes, but to realize the true dramatic cost of delivery. The need for unshakable adherence to QMS, CRM, CSR and Governance is the guideline to structure confident WBS, CSFs, and KPIs for successful monitoring and operating systems. Should all endeavors been carried out as research “Projects”; which require conclusive realization, governing integrity and absolute visionary on both shareholders and processing.
It is the time for change at all levels, overwriting confused bureaucracy, misused political alliances and greedy enterprising lobbying.. It is the time to "Engineer" the world.. Prayers are continued to all the helpless poor around the globe..
