High Team Performance in the Nuclear Sector – Spring 2021 Update
Acorn’s continued work with the UK nuclear sector over recent years has seen our involvement in three high profile projects, each in very different areas of activity: new build, procurement and decommissioning.
Each project has achieved impressive results: cost savings of many millions, completion ahead of schedule and glowing health and safety records.
A common thread throughout all projects has been Acorn’s ability to improve the performance of teams comprising supply chain contractors and internal resources, and to unify them around shared project objectives.
The approach is one which builds on leadership style and Acorn’s Team Dimensions Model, a proven dynamic toolkit which reduces the time it takes for any team – internal or in collaboration – to become a fully effective, high performing unit.
LLWR PCM Programme
The legacy Plutonium Contaminated Materials (PCM) programme at LLWR was tasked with decommissioning five ‘magazines’ – concrete bunker-like structures originally constructed during World War II and where contaminated materials from operations at the Sellafield site were later stored before purpose-built storage facilities were commissioned.
Acorn were introduced to help the collaboration teams work cohesively and get the project on-track.
“The programme has been a towering example of what can be achieved when a determined and focused group who really want to get the job done, adopt a collaborative approach.” Paul Pointon, Managing Director, LLWR
