Thanks for joining me! Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter....
As a Project Management Leader, Lachlan Wilson supports the delivery of mega-projects at an executive level to help business leaders solve complex business challenges with a highly structured and systematic approach.
Working on large-projects and portfolios, and as part of large project teams, his primary strategic focus is on improving organisational capability and supporting effective project delivery.
Working on several of Australia’s largest infrastructure and telecommunications Projects, Lachlan’s experience traverses the entire project lifecycle, which includes major procurement, Portfolio/ Program Office establishment and management, through to dispute resolution.
Lachlan Wilson is a leader who engineers people-success in projects through simplifying complexity.
He expertly delivers success in mega-projects across Australia.
Lachlan Wilson has a rare combination of strategic thinking, deep technical competence and the leadership skills to effectively deliver within highly complex and often quite political environments.
His extensive Project Management expertise and accomplishments are demonstrated across multiple roles in 6 sectors: aviation, mining, infrastructure, rail, IT and telecommunications.
I started my career as an engineer and rapidly progressed into senior and executive Project Management roles. I’ve held senior roles within both public and private sector organisations, with some of Australia’s largest infrastructure and telecommunications projects. From my early career, as a site engineer, to now, where the projects have just become larger and more complex, what remains constant are the key project management principles.
Regardless of the size or scale of your project: systems and technology will only work effectively when you have the right business processes and fully support the development of the people using them. This is fundamental to what I deliver.
Lachlan is a very strong leader and mentor of the people working within his area and also outside of his area, mentoring PMs on their use of various tools and strategies for successful project delivery. He is seen as a subject matter expert in technologies relating to project controls and delivery and has the strategic vision to align project deliverables within the group to reflect the corporate strategy and outcomes required. During his time working within the project group he has produced strategies and tactics to move from a low level (spreadsheet) management methodology to an integrated project management methodology, successfully managing complex change management issues throughout the process. He challenges in a proactive and positive manner and drives for outcomes at every possible opportunity.D.H
Lachlan immediately impressed me with his arrival to our team. It’s rare that you find someone who can not only process and map out program delivery risk, but also articulate it clearly and logically – from the coal face to the executive. Same goes for program opportunities, his logical and scientific approach assisted us recover time and cost at times when it was needed most. His contributions in a highly political and ever-changing environment helped the project maintain composure. He knows when to lead, and when to support.
I would gladly recommend Lachlan in any role either managing and/or controlling complex projects. This would include projects with complex infrastructure, technology and operational integration requirements.W.C
