New Online Course Launched: Contract Management for Field Personnel

  • By: pcadmin on 13 Apr 2016

Each project is different in the way field contracts are managed. Sometimes there is a dedicated contract administrator, other times it is a field engineer who has to manage the contract and still others it is the construction manager or the project manager. On a daily basis they have to make decisions to act or not to act. These decisions could materially affect the Contractor, the Owner, and others.

In the end, no matter who is managing the contract, the same contract management activities apply and the field personnel require knowledge of these activities. Knowing these activities will go a long way in minimizing claims during the contract management process as well as lessening problems in the field.

This new 12-hour self-paced e-learning course looks at 16 different activities associated with managing a field contract. Each of the 16 activities is important to the whole effort of managing the contract. If you leave out one, the whole contract management effort falls apart.

FREE Webinar April 7 - Leading A Quality-Driven Project Management Office: Honour the Past, Treasure the Present, Shape the Future

  • By: pcadmin on 01 Mar 2016

Operating a successful PMO requires leadership, vision, and insight. It also requires that your team buys in to your vision and works towards your common goals. This is really a cultural challenge: so can you create a culture where your PMO will thrive and continually improve?

In this case-based presentation, Procept associate Jonathan Nituch explores one company’s journey to create a PMO by focusing on quality first. How did this approach affect the creation of the PMO? What role did the team members play? How did the team’s attitude towards the PMO change over time?

You can’t create quality without managing quality. There is a tendency for quality to be associated with clipboards, inspections, and additional compliance burdens. Sadly, this perception is a reality when quality initiatives fail to recognize the critical role of culture. Through a culture of engagement, team members develop a sense of ownership for not only their projects, but for the PMO as a whole. As a result:

  • The PMO continually improves, along with the associated projects
  • The PMO maintains relevance amidst changing environmental conditions
  • The cost of quality continues to decrease
  • The ease of future changes increase dramatically

On April 7, 2016 at Noon Eastern time, attend this compelling presentation to learn how a quality-driven PMO honours the past by ensuring the necessary records are created; treasures the present by leveraging all opportunities for learning, growth, and improvement; and shapes the future by correcting past mistakes and preventing future errors.
