Disappointing Delays and Deadlines in Fujairah

What is it with so many shonky schedules and overdue deadlines?

The Century Mall was ‘Coming Soon’ to Fujairah six years ago.

Carrefour said it would open its doors in the Century Mall last July.

The Al Sharq Hospital was going to open last September.

The delays were endless for the new express road.

The oil pipeline, which was to start flowing in December 2011, is now due to begin operations in June 2012.

Why make unrealistic declarations when delays disappoint and signal an air of incompetence?

Much better to set a later date that allows for difficulties but engenders joy and bolsters confidence when the project is delivered on or ahead of schedule.
