 Intersection Safety Camera Upgrade Project: Lessons Learned – August 15, 2012by Director of Programs

 

About this Session :

Working in partnership with all key stakeholders is the linchpin to outsourcing success. The primary lesson learned in the execution of the Intersection Safety Camera Upgrade (ISCU) Project was that organizations must develop partnerships with their vendors, not expect to simply make demands and keep the vendor at a distance as a traditional customer.

The Intersection Safety Camera Program reduces crashes at intersections by about 5%. The purpose of the ISCU Project was to replace the existing 120 “wet film” camera sites and manual processing system with 140 networked digital cameras transmitting to an automated backend ticket processing system. The program is outsourced by ICBC to Redflex Traffic Systems and is run in partnership with the Solicitor General and the RCMP.

By examining the lessons learned on the ISCU project, this presentation will examine how the ISCU project team developed a partnering relationship with the outsource vendor and other key stakeholders to create a framework for program sustainment.

 

Presenter:

Carol McLean is currently a senior project manager at the Insurance Corporation of BC. She is proud of her work on the Intersection Safety Camera Upgrade Project which she considers a career highlight. She says it’s not often you get the opportunity to work on a project which the people can readily identify and support.

Carol has recently led two workshops for the Society PM Professionals of the Lower Mainland on two topics for which she has a passion: Holding Effective Meetings and Quality Assurance: Issues and Solutions.

Carol is a career project manager with over fifteen years in project management and twenty years experience in IT. Carol has worked in the financial industry, from banking to brokerage to insurance, forestry, telecommunications, utilities, municipal and provincial government. She believes project success hinges on the strength of the project manager’s ability to communicate and connect with people.
