Major French and European companies go worldwide

By | Industry News | No Comments

French and European engineering companies efficiently manage crisisThe French and European major construction and engineering companies such as Vinci, Bouygues or Eiffage are no longer impacted by the economic downturn. One of the main reasons is the global strategy they have chosen for their activities, which they implemented to cope with the contraction of the European market.

These large groups fulfill major contracts in developing countries where

coordinate various participantOne of the main focuses of successful projects is to coordinate and collaborate effectively. In a project, participants are not only from internal teams, more and more participants are external, such as stakeholders, sub-contractors….

While it is important to have an overall vision of the project, each participant needs to focus on his or her own role.
