He headed up the development of the project management system, took a lead role devising the concept for the project and led the team through the implementation phase. He is now engaged as the program manager on an on- going basis, overseeing all projects undertaken across the portfolio, with a number of other project managers reporting to him. Key lessons he learned as a result of spearheading this project included the need for strong stakeholder engagement and understanding, right from the start of the project's inception. Rayward, who is an ex-army engineering officer, a Certified Project Director and also has an MBA and a Masters in Project Management, says clear and concise guidance up and down the chain throughout the deliv- ery of the project was another significant lesson. "The need for strong leadership was also important. Enthusiasm and passion are essential ingredients to ensure a successful project," he adds. Now, Rayward is focused on continuing to develop the program of work associated with the initial project for Nambawan Super Limited, along with other major projects in Papua New Guinea and Australia. "I'm motivated to see the continued realisation of the benefits from development of Nambawan Super Limited's Property Management System. I will also continue to be involved in the development of other business and project optimisation systems and challenging programs of works and projects," he says.
