“From thinking all this planning at the front was a waste of time and we “just wanted to get on with it” to really seeing the value of a well-honed programme manager, Waikato District Council moved a long way in a short time. This was a tough project: an immovable deadline, no budget and staff inexperienced in a project of this magnitude. Brett Dodson’s value came in his global experience, knowledge of IT systems, his ability to rally a team and then develop their project management skills along the way. He was a hard task master (in the nicest possible way) but in the end we had no significant hiccups, we met the deadline and we came in under budget. Put simply we couldn’t have done it without him.”

“You often hear the saying that the devil is in the details – well no devil was going to be allowed to hide in the detail with Katrina around. Katrina (Lund-Tangye) was relentless in her drive for perfection, for turning over every rock, for making sure everyone understood and at the very end for rolling her sleeves up and getting on with it. She has well developed project management skill and was a pleasure to work with.”
