We are offering 2 sessions on August 22nd geared specifically to Sr. leaders(a.m.) and Field Leaders (p.m.).

AM Session – Senior Leaders
8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

“Risk Management – An Examination of Firm Risk and Change Management”
Risk management is an essential aspect of all construction organizations.  One area in particular that causes great angst is Change Order Management.  Whether it is poor design, unforeseen conditions or simply an owner that changes their mind, change is inevitable.  However, how does an organization protect itself from undue risk all while maintaining client relations and ensure the projects make money.

During the morning  session the attendees will learn the following:

    • Examine the controllable and uncontrollable sources of firm risk affecting trade contractors today
    • Identify the areas of “change management” that are most problematic
    • Understand the role of firm-wide process consistency to help vet and support a successful change management system
    • Discuss as small groups strategies and tactics to mitigate the stress and risk of change orders


PM Session – Field and Project Leaders
1:00 to 3:30 p.m.

“Change Order Management”
Most firms have a policy of “No work shall commence, until there is a written, executed change order…”  So what’s the fuss?  If only it were that easy.  Field leaders are placed under an inordinate amount of stress related to protecting the business from this added risk.  Developing a proactive change order management process will help firms protect against margin erosion, client dissatisfaction and legal ramifications.

During the afternoon session, the attendees will learn the following:

    • Examine the best practices associated with change order management
    • Identify the right behaviors that project managers, superintendents and foremen should exhibit to drive successful projects
    • Discuss as small groups tactics and strategies that work today and for tomorrow
    • Role play the various stakeholders and examine the perspectives of the owner, general contractor and trade contractor to see how they view the world
