No matter what your business does and what projects you are trying to deliver, its the quality and commitment of the people working in the team that make all the difference to its success.
This is especially true for technology and IT projects where it is easy to get stuck in the weeds of how things should work and not so much on the impact that will have.
We helped the National Fostering Agency implement a change to their IT systems recently by migrating on to our cloud based platform. But the two things stuck me from that work.
Firstly a quote from Mark Garratt, Group Finance Director of the National Fostering Agency, where he calls out the great work of Laura Johnson, who led the project for the him:
“She undertook some amazing work and the project wouldn’t have been so successful without her.”
Secondly the Iain Anderson, CEO of the National Fostering Agency took the time to write to us and thanked one of our employees Christian Faulkner:
“I just wanted to drop you a personal note to thank you for your valuable input into the BT migration project during March. Now, several weeks on, and with minimal glitches experienced by the service users, it can be seen that the project went very smoothly with minimal upheaval to the running of the business.
“Thank you for your commitment and skill you gave to the project. I was especially impressed to hear you went above and beyond your day job in working extra hours, including over the weekend in order to deliver the project within the required timeframe.
“Your hard work has not gone unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.”
It just goes to show, with the right people on board great things happen.
