EMBRACING PROJECT UNCERTAINTY

Sponsored by

  Project Management Institute Southern Alberta Chapter ( PMI-SAC )

 Content

No major capital project goes exactly as planned. Your challenge is to lead the project through a volatile environment filled with uncertainty.  Your ability to become comfortable with project risks can be an opportunity that you can use to your advantage.  George Jergeas, PhD, P.Eng. from the University of Calgary will discuss how to manage construction risks and stakeholders through proper governance structure, compliance with legal and ethical requirements and collaborative execution at all levels of a major construction project.

 Speakers

Dr. George Jergeas P.Eng is a professor and Director of Project in the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary, where he has taught and researched in project management since 1994. George’s areas of focus are: contracting, contractual strategies and contract administration, collaborative relationships, and claims and disputes.

George has over forty years of experience investigating cost overruns and delays on major capital projects (largely infrastructure and oil sands). George’s work centers on improving project alignment, and building and sustaining project teams, enhancing construction productivity, and making effective contractual arrangements, project governance and risk management. George has assisted project teams in oil sands developments, hospitals, roads and bridges, tunneling, LRT expansions and mining. George co-authored, “Risk Navigation Strategies for Major Capital Projects: Beyond the Myth of Predictability”, 2011 and the “Benevolent Dictatorship for Major Capital Projects”, 2017.
