• Project Management series to launch in the Philippines coming March 2017

    20 February 2017

    Salvo Global will be holding a series of masterclasses that concentrate on improving practice management skills. The Project Management series is composed of the Project Scheduling and Risk Management Masterclass, followed by Cost Engineering and Budget Management for Projects Masterclass which will be held on 6-7 March 2017 and 8-10 March 2017 respectively in Makati, Philippines .

    The indicator of the success and quality of a project is the Iron Triangle of Project Management: scope, schedule, and cost. Like puzzle pieces, project managers are tasked to put together a productive schedule and a balanced costing, all in the desired outcome of the client. By manning the three constraints well, you ensure profitability and high quality on delivery.

    With this in mind, Salvo created a series that focuses on a holistic approach that will ensure successful project delivery. The 2-day Project Scheduling and Risk Management Masterclass will help delegates learn how to develop an accurate schedule and identify project risks more efficiently. Important sessions to be discussed in the event include best practices in scheduling, schedule and budget risk analysis, and risks in contracting. Followed by the 3-day Cost Engineering and Budget Management for Projects Masterclass, delegates will also learn how to ensure appropriate balance between technical aspects and related costs of projects. Through interactive discussions and exercises, delegates will be taught important techniques on budget and costs controls and Earned Value Management.

    The international trainer for these courses was a member of the Board of Directors for the Project Management Institute (PMI) with over 35 years of experience in project and program management. He is the president of an international firm that offers consultation and training in project management. In 2009, he won PMI’s Significant Contribution Award for being actively involved in the organization, having served on both local and national committees. Companies that have benefitted with the trainer’s expertise include Meralco PowerGen Corporation, Philippine Airlines, National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, Chevron, Eskom, General Electric, and more.

  • Masterclass on Value Engineering to bring attention to cost management

    15 August 2016

    Salvo Global will hold a masterclass on value engineering entitled Value Engineering for Projects, which is intended particularly for professionals who are responsible for controlling or supporting large and complex projects, services, and systems. The course will run on the following dates and locations:

    • 2nd to 4th November 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    • 7th to 9th November 2016 in Makati, Philippines

    When a project runs over budget, project managers and engineers need to be prepared to find ways of doing more with less. Clients aren’t looking to simply cut costs; they’re looking for professionals that can deliver a well-balanced project in all aspects – function, performance, quality, safety, and cost. Value Engineering (VE) has proved to be a valuable tool in stretching capital, construction, operation, and maintenance budget to achieve the required goals for reduced costs, both in the public and private sector. Use of VE techniques also typically results in improvements in facility performance, even at these lower costs.

    With this in mind, the 3-day masterclass will introduce to delegates VE and the steps required undertaking a VE assignment or formalizing a successful program. The course will cover overall performance issues and the history and basics of the value concept, considerations for starting a VE study, guide to developing a study framework and a firm foundation for undertaking a VE workshop, and guidance on how to develop and sell VE recommendations, along with implementation, and monitoring for sustaining results.
