Next week, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar addressing the best ways to manage changes in construction projects.
During the interactive webinar, scheduled for Tuesday, June 22, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), construction management consultant Bruce Hallock will explain the root causes of change in construction projects and how change can be better managed. His company has been involved with more than 500 construction projects, encompassing all delivery methods from design-bid-build, design-build, TPM, and turnkey.
The webinar is entitled “Teaching the Caterpillar to Fly: Ideas About Managing Change in Construction.” To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/39pdgp9.
Webinar attendees will learn the following:
- What the term “change management” means. It is not a technique but the application of basic project management fundamentals.
- The difference between managing change and administering a change order procedure.
- The root causes of change.
- The key responsibilities of owners, designers, and contractors in the change-management process.
- What the specific risks and impediments to effective change management are, and what webinar attendees can do to protect themselves against these problems.
- Change management best practices.
- The elements of a change management system.
- A success story demonstrating that change management does work.
