Today was my last day at Interoute, and despite everything that's going on these days, I'm almost done with my books and magazines backlog, and while going through April's PM Network, I stumbled upon thebuzz column titled "No Walk in the Park". The article is really interesting and depicts the trend in theme park projects in various areas of the world, describing some of the big projects ongoing in Americas and Asia. However, I'm seriously questionning the numbers provided by the PWC study Global Entertainment and Media Outlook 2007-2011, that ranks Middle East as the Top 5 spender in the amusement park segment by 2011, with "only" $200 million. That number has to be much higher if you look at megaprojects like Dubailand, which Universal Studios will be a part of.
Anyway, my point is that considering the amount of high end projects in that segment that are already ongoing, or due to be launched pretty soon, and the well known global shortage in project talents, it will be a real challenge to beef up my team overthere. If you are a top notch Project Leader, Program Manager, Risk Manager or Change Manager, if you feel like working for a big player like Universal Studios in a challenging geographical area like Dubai, please send me your resume and cover letter. If you know a top notch Project Leader, Program Manager, Risk Manager or Change Manager, who feels like working for a big player like Universal Studios in a challenging geographical area like Dubai, I would be grateful if you could foward this post to them.
