Continues the adventure...
Which began as getting a project approved
And then building an ammonia-based fertilizer factory.
There's keeping the Head Office satisfied
And controlling a group of smart people at several levels
Plus covering what government regulations require
Then getting the factory built is not the end of the job
After that there's commissioning, making it work
And all the odds and ends of left-over details to be completed
Including making sure the contractor finishes what he's paid to do
And then there's company accounts to be signed off
After all that we hope we have a reasonably happy "working family"
Because people are an essential part of running a business
So although this is about engineering and management
It's a story about people.
