 Project Scheduling, Risk Analysis and Cost Control
Date: June 8 - 12, 2015
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa

Organized By:
Infocus International Group
www.infocusinternational.com

Description:  In an increasingly asset-intensive industry, failure isn't an option. Investment dollars must absolutely deliver on expectations. Environmental factors, market shifts, unforeseen engineering challenges, improper planning, overly optimistic goals, skilled talent issues, and a host of innumerable pitfalls and risks all have the potential to push ambitious efforts off schedule, over budget, and potentially offline. In challenging times, one failed projecta problematic exploration effort, a refinery plagued by equipment delays, or an otherwise on-track effort slowed by weather conditionshas the potential to jeopardize both short-term success and the company's ability to further its long-term strategic goals.

How then do organisations prevent scheduling errors, define risk analysis and develop solid cost controls to ensure on time delivery and projects remain in scope? They do this through understanding best practice methods and learning in a safe environment before they execute in the field, regardless of industry or trade.
