1.5 hours formal CPD


In the realm of projects, change shall mean anything that deviates from the originally agreed scope, terms and condition of the contract. It is inherent, hard to avoid and sometimes unpredictable, therefore it is best that in all stages of the job it is well managed.

To this regard, management shall mean setting up adequate processes and infrastructures, so that all stakeholders can properly identify what qualifies as a change. So, what happens to the perceived changes that falls through the cracks in the change management process? As well as those items that concerned parties couldn’t agree on entitlement?

Upon completion, attendees will have gained:

  • Understanding on topics such as Change Order, Forensic Analysis, and Claims Avoidance through the lens of both a contractor and client perspective.
  • Understanding of practical techniques and Project Management/Project Controls best practices for effective Change Management and Claims Avoidance implementation.
