Energy: preferences x Importance

In the energy arena, companies and institutions have a marked preference for a very Brazilian modus operandi.

1. Obtain information from potential suppliers

"For free", simple, easy and without compromise.

2. Focus on details

Proposals are requested and the comparison is mainly due to differences in technical and financial aspects.

3. Decision

The technical levels previously recommend the proposal that they judge best for the director of the area to seal the deal.

My experience shows that what really matters is going through an independent, defensible and auditable decision-making process, led by a director from the very beginning.

1.Discover the boundary conditions that a project must meet to be successful

2. Explore solutions that fit the technical, financial and management requirements

3. Compare solutions considering advantages, disadvantages and associated risks

4. .Decide which ones should be contracted.

Independent decision making offers more chances to achieve and maintain excellent results.
