In today’s competitive environment, organizations are trying to find a new approach to managing their different operations. By its very nature, the construction industry is contentious and filled with a wide variety of disputes. Even the best-managed project is likely to have one or more significant disputes which may imperil the successful completion of the project.


• Introduce participants to issues in project management with emphasis on project delivery, planning, schedule, monitoring, reporting and control strategies.

• An integrated approach is presented where the project is studied throughout its phase from early inception and feasibility analysis on schedule compression and acceleration strategies.

• Introduce various scheduling techniques including CPM with lead/lag constraints, and the coverage of resource allocation, and time-cost trade-off techniques. Special attention will be given to schedule updating, and the problems related to the integration of scheduling and cost control.

• The seminar will also cover issues related to management techniques for mitigating projects with compressed schedules. Helpful actions to be taken by the owner, contractor and subcontractors to alleviate the constraints prior to the acceleration will be described.
