Topic: The Soft and Hard ; and the Long and Productive

As an engineer in the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore, we not only need the hard skills to handle the hardcore civil and structural engineering work but also the soft skills to handle feedback from the general public, stakeholders and even Members of Parliament. Beside the hard and soft, the work in LTA is also typically 'longish' in nature. Much of what we do, whether rail, road or commuter infrastructures are measured in kilometres. The advantage of length is that very often, they can be designed modular and with it, we have been able to adopt precast technology to achieve productivity and cost effectiveness. Moving on, how else can we enhance our productivity?
