Introducing Blue Riband

Blue Riband is a fictional business model, an employee controlled entity, much like a professional organization.

Many
new ideas are proposed, encapsulated within Blue Riband, as possible solutions to the shortage of Marine
Engineers in Canada. The project presents a new way to manage the high
quality human capital needed, to make sure shipping remains viable, well
into the future.

You can visit the project’s website at http://www.blueriband.ca, to view what some of the ideas are. 

Blue Riband – Quality above all

Welcome to http://www.blueriband.ca,
a website created to expand the conversation on reforming and advancing
the Marine Engineering profession. Marine Engineers are highly trained
professionals who play a key role in the operation of ships, and other
offshore structures around the world.

This website exist to
introduce and discuss a series of ideas to make Marine Engineering more
sustainable in Canada. These ideas are grouped into a theoretical
business model called Blue Riband.

Blue Riband is a “big picture”
project that blends new ideas and best practices from various
institutions, to give a hybrid organization focused on Quality – Quality
in service to clients, quality of life for a marine engineering career.
“Best practices” from…

Large
shipping enterprise, crewing agency, Union, Transport Canada, Class,
International Shipping Industry, Pilots Association, CIMarE, Class,
& other professional bodies – Doctors, PEng, Technologist.

There is an
area of The Common Rail, the electronic forum area of www.dieselduck.net to help move the discussion along.

I am
not perfect, neither are the ideas of Blue Riband, or my presentation
of these ideas; if you see something that could use improvement, I’d like to hear from you…
