The FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract - Typical Pitfalls and New Solutions

Apr 11, 2017 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

An in-depth exploration of the new FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract, highlighting new ways to create integrated frameworks whilst improving value and working effectively with the supply chain. Case studies from the UK Ministry of Justice, Surrey County Council and Futures Housing Group (the first adopters of the FAC-1 form) will help you learn why this new contract is becoming the contract of our time and was described by delegates in a previous PMI webinar as “state of the art”. King’s College London Centre of Construction Law created the new FAC-1 standard form after 12 months of consultation with over 120 organizations in 14 countries, leading up to its publication in June 2016. The published form is already in use, has been presented at many international forums and is being translated for use into 5 other languages. Case studies will show you how clients and teams can improve value under a framework or alliance, using connected projects to build on their experience and establish more integrated systems. FAC-1 makes this easier for all parties and creates a transnational basis for improved working practices. FAC-1 is not a new building contract form, and instead is designed to connect any one or more existing building contract forms including: • any national or international building and engineering contract forms including FIDIC • any national or international consultant appointments. Project Management topics covered: • Procurement Strategy • Contract Management • Project Governance • Collaborative Working & Effective Communication • BIM (Building Information Management)

Culture as the Ultimate Impediment to Deploying Agile

May 23, 2017 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

One of the key topics discussed when talking about agile concerns the inhibitors in its deployment. Practitioners feel they are doing something wrong, but often they are not to blame. The culprit is culture, either within an organization, but very often tied to multinational teams whose members think and act differently. This is quite normal because we carry with us the values and norms from where we come. Can these obstacles be overcome? YES! The outcome of crafting multinational crossfunctional teams creates a basis of trust and understanding that allows for organizations to fully utilize the power of diversity, all within an agile way of working.

March 01, 2017 | 62:30 | Views: 1,643 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 5.70 / 7

Organizations change. They must change, or they disappear. Amidst change, they then struggle to ensure that the different changes they implement are really creating value. In this session we'll explore how to determine if a change has to occur, and how to ensure it delivers value.

Agile Process Design

by Michael Boyle 
February 28, 2017 | 51:54 | Views: 931 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 5.39 / 7

How are processes developed today and where does the customer fall within your processes? Is the customer simply a participant in your internal processes, or is her desired outcome your focus? Do you use automation to facilitate design and adherence? What about collaboration with the employees who know the processes the best; those performing the work? In this video lecture, we describe Agile Process Design and why this approach is important to both Project Managers (part of the deliverables) and Business Analysts (focus on needs). Explicit approaches will be highlighted in this webinar, including examples of how processes are designed in an agile way.
