Although, it can be argued that many of the points below are straight forward, self-evident and simply common sense, because in fact, they are. It’s equally apparent that in a world where we’re often very busy trying to deliver multiple incremental improvement projects and efficiency gains, that much of what follows is sometimes forgotten or given little consideration.
