E&C PM Enrich December 3 2016


During the planning phase, the time estimated to complete an activity in construction could be compared to the incense fumes contained in a room; it will fit in to the clients constrained time demand. This in-turn means construction time schedules are mainly prepared for clients not for execution professionals. In construction projects majority of activities gets completed during the fag end of projects, irrespective of the time schedule prepared in the initial phase. This also causes quality issues and profit loss even if the project is handed over on time.


Lack of collaboration, failure in understanding the scope, constraints, assumptions, risks etc, and “repeating mistakes than best practices” creates uncertainty in project completion and unwanted pressure on construction professionals during handing over stage.


A structured way of planning the project should involve all the stakeholders at right time and ensure proper making ready of activities by managing risk and work within the constraints of the project. It also gives an opportunity to learn lessons from daily failures and manage day-to-day issues in an effective way bringing predictability and reliability to construction commitments.


To facilitate this transition, PMI Bangalore India Chapter brings to you this one day workshop on “Lean Project Management Best Practices” – for establishing a Reliable Construction timeline.


Workshop will give an insight about the Lean Construction & Project Management concepts, methods to understand the real reasons behind challenge and ways to improve construction.
