WPL Publishing will host a webinar that is designed to help companies understand how a project governance program can help them stand out as an ethical member of the construction community and minimize some of the risks that they may face.
For the webinar, entitled "Project Governance: How to Improve on 'One Foot on the Gas' and 'One Foot on the Brake'," WPL will partner with Harold Dorbin, a senior vice president and project advisory leader for Marsh Risk Consulting’s Construction Consulting Practice. The 90-minute webinar will take place Tues., Feb. 23 at 1 p.m. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/ykt5amz.
The webinar is tailored for the following audience: risk management professionals; board members; executive officers; general counsel for an owner, contractor, government agency, subcontractor, manufacturer, or supplier; design professionals; engineers; architects; and outside counsel.
This interactive program will provide attendees with an understanding of the development of effective project governance solutions for their organizations and give insight to identify and address symptoms of poor project governance. The webinar is designed to give attendees answers to their pressing questions and provide a clear understanding of the steps necessary to start their project governance campaigns.
The webinar covers the following topics:
- The definition of project governance and what it means to owners, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers.
- The elements and boundaries of project governance systems.
- A “start-up checklist” of points to fulfill when planning a project governance program campaign.
- Common sources of poor project governance in otherwise successful companies.
- Systematically addressing common sources of poor project governance in an organization.
- Organizational considerations for an effective project governance system.
- When a collaborative “bottom up” or “top down” approach is best in defining the project governance system.
In addition, a 10-to-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the panelist presentation for an interactive question-and-answer session so that webinar attendees can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about topics discussed.
