The problem

Whether you are a contractor, a consultant or a client, a reputation of poor programme management is common in this industry.

This is because typical programmes are produced when the contract is signed – well before people have fully grasped the project – and then the programme is never updated. Gant charts are produced and stuck on the wall and only referred to when things goes wrong.

Is your programme ever out of date?
Does it accurately reflect your current project works?
Probably not!

When things go wrong it is instinctive to turn to the programme, but how can extension of time claims be justified or assessed when the programme is out of date?

The Academy’s Programming for Better Commercial and Risk Management course shows you how programming needs be treated as a management tool that will help you identify who needs to do what and when…

 

What am I going to learn?

This course will show you how to programme your projects for success.

  • By definition a programme helps you identify who needs to do what and when. A robust programme should be used as a tool by which the prerequisite work required by all parties to enable the contract to be completed is communicated
  • Assess the impact of change. In a program that is several months out of date it is much harder for the contractor to prove variations and compensation events
  • If you have experienced difficulty with extension of time claims, this course will show you how having an on-point programme will help. If there is no record of how things were supposed to play out compared to how they have happened, then proving these claims to the client will be unnecessarily difficult
  • Help all parties understand what the contractual requirements for the program in NZS3910 and NEC3
  • How to use your programme to manage risks, such as knowing by which date you’ll need what information
  • Understand different types of float (total, terminal, free and time risk) in programs and how updating a program can affect the project. Plus understand who owns which float
  • How to update the programme collaboratively – its not a task that the contractor should do in isolation
  • The focus will be on how to compile a programme that enables the effective commercial management of a project
  • Effective commercial management helps to:
    • Justify extension of time claims, objectively assess the cost impact of change, avoid delays, avoid abortive work, avoid disputes and mitigate cost escalations
    • Manage interfaces with others, increase effective communication and collaboration across the supply chain and increase the chances of delivering a successful project

Why choose The Academy Programming for Better Commercial and Risk Management?

It’s enjoyable!

“I’m really glad I was there. It was, I believe, a great opportunity to start the working relationship with Constructing Excellence and you did a great job to keep it far from boring.” – Malcolm Smith, HEB

Immediately applicable…

You’ll immediately be able to revise and update your project programmes. After this course you will understand the importance of good programming, contractual programme requirements and how to produce a programme that can be used as a commercial management tool for your project – all through case study learning!

Contractors…

This course is tailored to contractors. Typically contractors are the ones who produce the contract and as such need to understand the contractual requirements for the programme, how manage the project’s risk through good programming, how avoid delays, abortive works and disputes, etc…

Clients…

While the contractor or consultant usually produces the programme, clients need to be aware of contractual requirements for the programme, what to expect, why certain information is in the programme, reasons for accepting/rejecting the programme and how to assess time claims. Without these skills it is easy to get taken for a ride.

War stories shared…

The course value is demonstrated through industry examples. Networking and learning from the other participants is achieved by being encouraged to share your personal experiences.

Presented by an industry leader…

The tutor, Garry Miller, has a strong project management background with plenty of direct industry experience.
