Report addresses to develop security infrastructure requirements for shopping and entertainment development “off the plan”.
DEVELOP WORK PRIORITIES
Clear work objectives at the individual, team and organisational level
Main work objective at individual, team and organisational level is to secure the building site area during developing stage. Thus, for this effective technical skills and management skills are required in order to ensure that team meets the set objectives. It requires 24 hour security, a gate house with one static guard during the hours of 6:30-18:00 Monday-Sunday and also one patrolling guard during 24 hours (Selvarajah, 2014). Therefore, proper security solutions need to be provided to the new building as it is constructed nearby sea area.
Developing contingency plans for a range of foreseeable barriers to achievement of work objectives
Once identifying the work objectives, there are different factors that need to be considered in relation to contingency plan detailing the risks that individual and their team faces while implementing the work plan and how they would manage the risks (Mundy, 2013). Thus, it is essential to identify the risks and prepare contingency plan so that they could deal with barriers efficiently. There are certain common risks that might hinder achievement of goals which are as follows-
- Competitive work demands
- Breakdown of Technology and equipment
- Budget restriction
