    President Engineering & Construction

    SAMER S. KHouRy

    CCC has successfully maintained its position as one of the leaders in the Engineering & Construction Industry by allowing our executives and managers the freedom to innovate both externally and internally. I am confident that the CCC culture of innovation will remain one of the pillars of our success.

    CCC has innovated internally by creating better operational systems, IT systems, construction tools, robust construction methodology and advanced plant construction equipment (new procurement policies, leaner overheads and so on). In addition, we have adopted the latest project management techniques in order to become more efficient and to always be ahead of our competitors.

    CCC has innovated externally by expanding into new geographical areas ahead of others (Africa, the CIS and Asia) and into new construction lines ahead of our competition (oil and gas, airports and metros).

    I ask all CCC management to encourage this culture of innovation and to grant their subordinates the flexibility, the necessary time and resources for them to help nurture this positive trend towards innovation.

    You never know, in this changing world around us, a fresh graduate with very little experience may come up with an innovative idea that could change both CCC and the world!

    Innovation Is a Journey That Never EndsN. HusseiNi

    Innovation is the application of new solutions that meet new requirements, inarticulate needs, or existing marketing needs (Wikipedia).

    Many confuse innovation to be strictly in the realm of R&D and producing new patents. It is not.

    It lies in everyones job and when institutionalized correctly becomes a guiding organizational mission.

    At CCC we have been at the forefront of encouraging innovation into our processes. And yes it is never easy. We get internal resistance and we constantly suffer frictions over turfs, jurisdiction and not least budgets.

    We do well with innovation at CCC because of many factors:

    We have the moral support of our top executives. Many of the initiatives we launch target catalysing innovation internally. Knowledge Management and Sustainability are prime examples of this.

    We get immensely exposed to international and leading client requirements as crafted by designers who by definition keep pushing new ideas to their clients, requiring new and innovative methods for deliveries. Our Estimation Department keep us challenged to find optimal solutions that are well balanced between requirement and cost consciousness.

    We have good channels for disseminating newly acquired knowledge. The Information Systems Department,

    Knowledge Management Communities of Practice, and the Bulletin are testament to this. Lessons Learned forums are also a great means of keeping Innovation high on the visibility and agendas of our top executives.

    We are not perfect. We can do better.

    For one thing, we still need to increase the food for thought factor within our ranks. Human Resources should come up with new ways of sponsoring and sending our promising employees on more educational trips and leading edge conferences. This has been a key success factor of CCCs Information Systems Department, in a way CCCs Navy. Join the Navy and see the World. In our context, we tag to the tail end of the statement .and bring the best ideas back to CCC. The budget keepers as usual are not going to like this one! Unfortunately they do not weigh in the enormous benefits. ISD has been ranking first in internal service satisfaction. We are proud of this position fuelled by innovation.

    For another, we need to institutionalize innovation and its culture within CCC further. It needs an address and some known reliable mechanism. We are at near perfect storm results not cultural. Creating this is quite a challenge in a tense demanding environment of project schedules and budgets and I do not claim to have an answer to this wide topic as yet but when we do, then we will decrease frictions, resistance to change and reap even better results.

    Loyal Readers, this issue is simply a stock-taking of where we are with innovation and not where we could be. I simply lit a fuse and invite those who have some thoughts on this to share and write us.

    Enjoy another fine issue put together by your colleagues from around the globe.
