Owners / Design-Builders / Construction Managers — Risk Management is Everyone's Business
Learn what major construction companies already know -- active risk management techniques increase management effectiveness and improve project performance. In this 90-minute CD, construction expert Jean Hansen will help you understand how risk management techniques improve governance on construction projects, resulting in reduced mistakes and improved judgment calls. This recorded session will address the benefits of augmenting existing management programs used by the project parties during both pre-construction and construction phases.
Participants will also learn how to identify and manage the risks inherent in contract requirements, cost estimates and schedules. The techniques and tasks learned here can assist in the equitable and timely resolution of issues that would otherwise adversely impact the success of a project.
This recorded session will explore:
- The criteria for a successful project from each party’s perspective
- Project success goals and why a comprehensive understanding of them by the entire management team is critical
- The advantages of reviewing project procedures and practices early
- Key requirements for estimates and preliminary scheduling that allow for later evaluation and preclude disputes
- The difference between allowances and contingencies, why both should be re-evaluated over time and when these evaluations should take place
- What elements are evaluated in a review of contractor schedules
- The importance of “real time” resolution for potential disputes
- AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
