Within this wide spectrum one also finds construction projects, where, for a defined period of time, a number of people come together to realise a project. At iAS we do not always sit in the same role within the project team as we sometimes lead the team in a project management role and we sometimes provide design services only. In both cases, iAS management strongly believes that we should be fully committed to the project, doing what is necessary to get the job done. This effort has over the years become an iAS trademark with clients.
However one always has to keep in mind that ‘doing what is necessary to get the job done’ has to be seen in context with company values and project contractual obligations. For example, if getting the job done implies ruining an archaeological find of importance, one would have to carefully consider his actions in light of the company’s social responsibility value. One also has to compare the action to be taken to the contractual obligations that have been agreed upon with the Client. Any project entrusted to the company is generally accompanied by an engagement contract establishing the company’s deliverables.
