Om forfatteren

Sam Buah is a seasoned project manager with well over 15 years of project management
experience. This spans across the rail, transport and aviation industries, involving
different kinds of projects such as design and build, construction, and refurbishment and
security, among others.
In recent months, Sam has dedicated his time to focusing on leading programmes of
small- to medium-sized projects, areas of project management which are unique in their
delivery. These have opened doors to opportunities for him to have a much deeper
knowledge and understanding of managing minor projects.
Sam has been working with and supporting many non-project managers and tailoring
project management techniques and processes to suit each individual minor project,
while at the same time not overlooking health and safety requirements.
Besides delivering projects, Sam is also a passionate trainer, an ability and skill that
comes naturally to him. For the passion of sharing his knowledge, Sam always finds the
time and opportunity to be involved in helping non-project managers to fully embrace
and understand the need for and benefits of project management.
This is high on Sam's list of priorities and it has become his vision to embark on a series
of training sessions and workshops to promote the use of project management among
non-project managers and project managers.
