Project and Program Management experience
Dougal was the Project Manager for a project that delivered modified off-the-shelf, man-portable electronic warfare systems to the Australian Defence Force.
He successfully saw the project through from contract signature to delivery.
Dougal established plans and processes to co-ordinate project work that was carried out both by the contractor and subcontractors, most of whom were based internationally and came from a variety of disciplines (engineering, manufacturing and integrated logistic support).
Dougal identified and addressed risks to ensure all project reviews were successful and all delivery milestones were achieved on time and under budget.
Dougal Pidgeon is a project manager and procurement specialist with extensive experience gained working in the Department of Defence, state government and the defence industry.
Dougal has worked with clients to deliver and advise on projects at every stage of the capability lifecycle.
He has been involved in developing requirements and approaching the market, establishing and managing contracts for the delivery, support, and ultimately disposal of systems.
These projects and procurements also represent a wide variety in scope, value and approach and have included:
- A multi-billion dollar program to replace whole fleets of weapons
- Projects that were designing and developing new systems or modifying off-the-shelf products
- Rapid acquisitions for urgent operational requirements.
Dougal ensures his clients deliver projects and procurements through detailed and effective planning, establishing robust processes, maintaining clear communication, and strong but inclusive leadership.
Dougal has Masters degrees in Engineering Science (Project Management) and Defence Capability Development and Acquisition.
Dougal also has qualifications in procurement and tendering.
Dougal enjoys walking his dog around the green hills of the Yarra Ranges, and escaping from the notoriously variable weather there to dry out in front of a fire with a glass of red and a fine book.
