One of the critical outcomes of contract and project management is to ensure that risks to owners and contractor are identified and controlled in a proactive way so that both parties are satisfied with the project outcome. While world class project and contract management cannot, of itself, make risk “go away”, it can, and should, identify the risks and opportunities, determine who is responsible for managing each individual risk, and for the consequences should the risk occur.

The following are the highlights of the seminar:

Knowledge to move contracts and project management from the tactical/reactive to the more important proactive/strategic focus

  • Critical understandings of the risk mitigation process
  • How to examine both the threats and opportunities facing contracts and projects from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective using a proven risk management processes
  • Skills in allocating contract and procurement risk
  • Ability to identify the warning signs of cost overruns, schedule delays, and poor quality, as early as possible in the project to minimize or mitigate the impact

The seminar is split into two modules:

MODULE I - Contract Risk Management and Compliance

MODULE II - Project Risk Management and Compliance

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-week seminar.

Objectives

The primary objectives of the 2-part series are to help delegates to:

  • Apply useful techniques to identify, analyze, mitigate and monitor risks in the project life cycle
  • Use a practical, six-step process to manage project risk
  • Review the impacts of different approaches to risk allocation
  • Explore different contract types to transfer risks
  • Consider the contractual techniques to ensure effective risk allocation
  • Learn how to create an effective risk monitoring plan and risk management strategies

Training Methodology

Participants will increase competencies through a variety of instructional methods including lecture, exercises, reviewing published articles, checklists, videos, and group discussions. A comprehensive course manual enabling practical application and reinforcement is provided.

Delegates are encouraged to bring real problem examples with them, for discussion on a confidential basis, and to share their experience of particular issues. Time will be allowed for general discussions, and for one-to-one discussion with the trainer.

Organisational Impact

The organization will benefit by:

  • Expanding the expertise of personnel involved in project and contract development and management will allow project, contract, and general management teams to be more effective
  • The total cost of ownership will be understood and reduced by properly identifying and managing the risks during the project life cycle
  • Clear allocation of risk will reduce the possibility of contractor disputes, and any that do arise should be settled more quickly, with less cost, delay and disruption
  • Reducing project failure, poor quality, costly changes, and cost overruns resulting from poor understanding and management of risk
  • Implementing better risk management through the understanding of the relationship between scope, cost, and time which improves the chance of project success
  • Developing an appreciation of the true effect of contractual indemnities which will enable better decision-making as to contract structures and ensure that risk is passed to others properly and in a cost effective manner
