www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 17 for similar reasons. Captain Jacob van Zanten was the poster child of the KLM. He was the head trainer – the most gifted and experienced pilot. One day, van Zanten’s Boeing 747 was diverted to a little airport in Tenerife, Canary Islands. They’re on the runway and it’s foggy. They fuel the airplane, get up on the r unway and a garbled radio communication comes in. Van Zanten gets ready for take-off and the first officer said: “Excuse me Captain, I didn’t hear a take- off clearance in that message”. Both are embarrassed by this, right? Then a second garbled message comes through. Van Zanten gets ready for take-off again and the first officer thinks: ‘I’m not going to embarrass myself and this great pilot a second time’. What happens next? The plane slams into a Pan Am 747 parked on the runway, killing 600 people. So, the moral is, if you are going to be a project manager and you don’t take care of the context, you are going to have a Korean Airlines or KLM disaster. Is there a limit to where 4-D can be used or is it universal? Well, I see four core human needs that form the basis of the 4-D system: to feel valued and appreciated – it’s a deep emotional need – a sense of belonging, whether it’s your company, your country or your family; to believe in a realistic and hopeful future; to know what people are holding us accountable for; and having the resources to succeed. Those four needs are universal. That’s why 4-D works in France, Slovakia, Japan, Korea, China, Australia – it can work everywhere. when you look at the big projects in which you’ve been involved, are there any you are particularly proud of? In the time I was Director for Astrophysics, I launched 12 satellites, and the biggest by far was one you surely never heard of – the Compton Gamma R ay Observatory. We put that together with the right social context – the right contract, the right incentives, the right people and it was a joy to work on. The interesting thing for me was I was invited about 10 years ago to the 10th anniversary of the launch of the satellite, which worked perfectly. ••• Interested in the new PMI-ACP® (AGILE) Credential?
