Running on its 4th year, Salvo Global’s Integrated Project Control Masterclass will be held on the 1st – 3rd February 2016 in Accra, Ghana to guide project control-related professionals on how to accurately and successfully deliver projects with proper integration.
Multi-million dollar projects are quite complex and usually need stronger and more effective project control since it involves more uncertainty, larger investments, and higher risks. One of the main issues that make controlling projects difficult is trade-offs, compromising one element for the sake of another, possibly leaving clients with a project that is behind schedule or too costly.
Based on a study on owner project management practices and the related performance in construction projects, implementing good project control results to 5% to 15% gross savings. In this light, the 3-day course will tackle on fulfilling project deliverables within budget and schedule in an integrated manner. With an intensive and engaging mix of lectures, case studies, discussions, and activities, delegates can expect to be able to control scope, schedule, and costing in an integrated process, understand the impact of scope changes on both schedule and cost, control and communicate changes effectively, and overcome practical barriers to implementing Earned Value Management effectively.
The course aims to guide industry sectors such as Mining, Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals, Infrastructure & Construction, Power & Utilities, and Project Management Consultancies. Professionals that can benefit from the event are – but not limited to – Project Controls Managers, Project Controllers, Project managers, Project Planner & Schedulers, Project Engineers, Cost Controllers, Cost Managers, Const Engineers, Project Consultants, and Project Specialists.

He is a member of the Board of Directors for the Project Management Institute (PMI) and is also on the core planning committee for the 6th Edition of PMI’s PMBOK Guide.
