Additional Information
I have over 20 years of solid, in-depth and hands-on national and international experiences in overseeing and managing Civil/Building Engineering Construction and Project Management industry, and conversant with global construction methodologies and best in class practices to handle all engineering operations which include but not limited to all the stages of Civil/Heavy Engineering Construction and Project Management - Project Life Cycle: Project Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring and Control, and Project Closure.

I have established, spear-head and managed large construction projects with local and international companies like; Emaar Property, Dubai – Construction of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Jotna Group of Companies, Japaul Group of Companies, United Nations, E-Cost Associates, Tahal Group of Companies, Newelyton Civil/Building Engineering Construction Company with great success.

As you will see on the enclosed resume, the depth of my global and local experiences offer you the opportunity to hire a seasoned professional like me – one who can begin being productive at once. Your organisation is a good place to display my potentials and I am excited about the opportunity to share my wealth of experience, technical knowledge, and best in class practices, methodologies, international exposure and strong educational background with your company.

In my most recent Positions as Group Project Director and Senior Project Director and Head of Project Management Offices and Managing Director, I have demonstrated a tremendous ability to the support and maintain numerous operational construction objectives, and I have served as a consultant to most of the giant Civil Engineering Construction, Project Management and Real Estate firms e.g. United Nations MGD projects in Africa, UNDP assisted projects in 36 states of the federation including FCT on Infrastructure Development, Emaar Property Limited, Dubai, as a Senior Engineering Consultant to Burj Khalifa, etc. all these experiences were acquired at local and international levels, I have evolved as problem solver with great leadership style, innovative and creative thinking, generating new methodologies in the industry to provide impeccable developmental services. I am seeking new professional challenges and I am eager to put my acquired strong educational background and technical knowledge towards the growth and development of your company. I work diligently to provide excellence in all my professional endeavours and have earned a reputation of integrity, initiative and results-driven work ethic.

I have been integral in the creation and launch of two different Modern Construction Methods with full responsibility for establishing the process. I specialized in Civil/Building Engineering Construction, Project and operations management and business development for construction and project management industry, also in assessing developmental needs of the state and introducing world class infrastructure development that capitalize on growth opportunities for the state. Having worked in this industry globally for many years, I have sound knowledge of construction and project management with robust global best methodologies like Earned Value Management (EVM) currently in use by World Class organizations, which provides organizations with the Global Best Practices to keep organizations alive with steady cash flow and profitability, reduction in construction cost and with methodologies needed to integrate the management of companies’ processes e.g. Project scope, schedule, budget/cost and quality.

Among many of the methodologies I will introduce to the company have helped many other organizations to succeed brilliantly are: Adaptive Project Framework (APF), Agile, Benefits Realization, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), Critical Path Method (CPM), Event Chain Methodology (ECM), Extreme Programme (XP), Kanban, Lean, PRINCE2, PRISM, Process-Based Project Management, Scrum, Six Sigma Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma and Waterfall, these played a crucial role in answering management questions that are critical to the success of every business endeavor in construction project, such as: Are we ahead of or behind schedule? How efficiently are we using our time? When is the project likely to be completed? Are we currently under or over our budget? How efficiently are we using our resources? What is the remaining work likely to cost? What is the entire project likely to cost? How much will we be under or over budget at the end? If the application of EVM to a project reveals that the project is behind schedule or over budget, EVM methodologies can be used to help identify: Where problems are occurring; Whether the problems are critical or not; What it will take to get the business e.g. project back on track. This is one of the methods that will help the state manages her resources efficiently and effectively.

These are the tools I used to take Newelyton Civil Engineering Construction and Project Management Company from start-up venture to a fully established specialty company with projected revenue of $1,950,000 in 2004 at a reduced operational construction cost. It is this kind of forward thinking development that I will bring to your company.

Should we have the opportunity to meet, you will discover that my resume cannot reveal that I interact effectively with disparate organization units, project, operation management and quality control and the entire teams of the organization. That I excel in an environment replete with rapid change, frequent challenges and tight deadlines. That I continually seek out capitalize on new methodologies and global opportunities to support the growth and development of organization.

Thank you.

Engr. Dr. Obasanmi Richard.
