Novo Nordisk Engineering: Running for Fast-Track Project Execution Case Solution

When he was appointed CEO of Novo Nordisk Engineering, Hans Ole Voigt has created a vision of the company: In five years NNE should be able to build a pharmaceutical factory in less than a year. The first reactions were very negative, most employees found an unrealistic goal. The processes have been redesigned, people were trained and stepper NNE approached the goal. Employees are becoming more and more energy and the estimated 12-month target was accessible. On average 30 to 36 months of the construction industry NNE first time decreased to 24 and then 18, and 11 months. In 2005, the goal has been reached and that the company had earned a reputation with its achievements. Training Objectives: This case is a good opportunity to learn about speed in project management. From the point of view of the supply chain, showing the importance of the participation of minority suppliers customers in the successful execution of the project. It also helps to understand that even in highly regulated industries (pharmaceuticals) here processes can be modified and improved. In the management of human resources, the importance of employees shown driving create energy to overcome extremely challenging projects and investment in training in project management.
