Full workshops content:

This workshop discusses the 11 basic types of construction claims included in most standard contracts used throughout the U.S. – AIA, ConsensusDOCS, EJCDC, etc. The workshop outlines the entitlement and causation elements of each type of claim that the claimant must demonstrate to justify their right to prevail and recover damages. The workshop highlights the following types of construction claims – claims for directed changes; constructive changes; differing site conditions; directed suspensions of work; constructive suspensions; force majeure events; delays; accelerations; constructive accelerations; terminations for convenience; and terminations for default. The workshop also identifies several types of potential owner claims against contractors. The elements of the burden of proof required of all claimants are presented. The basic requirements concerning damages are covered. A discussion of claims under various project delivery methods and a summary of an accepted claims preparation and analysis methodology are also included in this workshop. The workshop will conclude with an outline of various dispute resolution methodologies.
After attending this workshop, attendees will:
Recognize that all parties to a construction contract must anticipate changes and claims.
Be exposed to the fundamentals of contracts and claims.
Examine the “universe of construction claims”.
See how the basic three part test of a claim (entitlement, causation, and damages) applies to each type of claim.
Understand the burden of proof requirement all claimants (both owners and contractors) must meet.
Better understand how to analyze and settle or defend against construction claims.
Learn how contractors and owners must deal with construction claims situations and events.
Appreciate the downside risk of leaving claims and disputes to fester until the end of a project.

This workshop will provide participants a practical introduction to Quantitative Schedule Risk Analysis and is suited to those who want to be introduced to it, or have recently started their journey into Schedule Risk Analysis. Participants will ideally have a basic to mid-level understanding of scheduling and risk management concepts.
The workshop will be hands-on and practical, participants will be required to bring their own PC’s and will be provided with links to trial a leading SRA software tool used on their own PC’s. The workshop will also provide worked example data to demonstrate the SRA process from inputs, and analysis through to production outputs.
Participants will understand how schedule risk analysis can be applied on projects to analyse, report and manage time-related risks.
The workshop will cover:
  • Introduction and Overview of Schedule Risk Analysis
  • Understanding SRA inputs – Schedule, Risks and Impacts
  • Understanding and Interpreting SRA Outputs
  • Scenarios and Advanced Analysis Topics
  • Wrap Up + Q&A
The workshop will be hands-on and practical. Registered participants will be provided with an extended trial of a leading SRA software tool used on their own PC’s. The workshop will also provide sample data to demonstrate the SRA process from inputs, and analysis through to production outputs.

Course name: Next Generation PMOs - Combining People and Machines
This workshop puts you on the other side of the table – you are here to build AI and automation software for Hs2. What are you going to do?

The point of this session is to enable you to ask the right questions back in your own business. You will learn how to:
  • • Identify valuable problems
  • • Translate problems into software requirements
  • • Build the AI and automation components
  • • Deploy quickly and iteratively
  • • Evidence return on investment
To support the above you will be provided with case studies of how others have successfully and unsuccessfully done it in the past.  

 

Attendees will learn the fundamentals of AI and automation product management in project controls.

Have you wondered about how earned value management (EVM) should be applied in support of your project, regardless of whether it's a contractual requirement? This presentation provides an analysis of the applicability of EVM in support of different types of projects, to include lessons learned and recommended practices. In addition to clarifying inherent nuances related to the terminology, this presentation will also examine lessons learned from the author's own experience, and more importantly will offer several recommended practices that can be leveraged by project stakeholders on both sides of the aisle.

 

  • Understand the definition of earned value (EV), earned value management (EVM), and earned value management systems (EVMS).
  • Understand how the above terms have historically been applied in support of construction projects.
  • Understand the differences in application of these terms between government and commercial projects.
  • Understand recommended practices relating to the use of EVM in support of different types of projects.
