This webinar will discuss the insights of PMI-commissioned research and showcase an anti-corruption toolkit that has been developed for project-based organizations. The toolkit provides useful suggestions on assessing and improving the organization's overall performance in tackling corruption. The research analyzed the code of conduct and professional practice of 22 of the largest construction companies and found six main insights reported in the codes of conduct.
Although the construction sector is strongly project-based and represents a major segment of the global economy (13% of GDP $ 10 trillion in 2018 projected to $14 Trillion by 2025), little is known about whether and how Project Portfolio Management (PPM) can provide benefits in this important sector. The research team from Australia and the United Kingdom investigated approaches to strategic alignment and PPM through inquiring into project-based practices of organizations in the construction sector.
Save Time With Tools + Templates
This template is meant to guide the preparation of a financial management plan for a project. Generally, these types of plans are used in construction projects with long-time execution, such as EPC projects. Depending on the type of project and the delivery method, this template must be adapted according to the contractual requirements and company standards.
This template was developed for its use on construction projects. However, its format and ease of data entry allows it to be easily transferrable to numerous disciplines. The sample template shows one Project Package, which is further categorized into three Project Phases.
This template is a sample Weekly Project Report originally utilized in an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Gas Chemical Project. The report contains sections for project control (project progress, manpower status, area of concern, shipment status, delivery status); QA/QC status; HSE status; and more. Adapt as needed for your own project.
This template includes important checklist items that need to be covered when visiting a site in order to define deliverables, as well as assess budget and timeline estimations to use on any audio visual installation project (specifically for presentation systems in classrooms and auditoriums).

This year’s PMI Global Summit in Atlanta helped project managers focus on how they can train themselves to meet the coming needs of employers—which involves three key themes we should all be aware of.
One of the most complex functions large PMOs manage is the prioritization of the organization’s portfolio of projects. Thankfully, artificial intelligence capabilities offer ways to create scenarios that provide helpful options.
One of the biggest challenges you face as a project manager is making sure all tasks are finished on time, within budget and—for those in the construction industry—safely. Task Talk puts the emphasis on duties rather than on people, and stresses how the duty is performed regardless of who is performing it.
Question: While the way we exchange information in meetings is important, are there guidelines and examples of ways to have people work together if they are not in IT—or in a cubicle? Some manufacturing workplaces are loud and action packed and need creative ways to exchange data and ideas. Can you help me?
For decades, predictive project management approaches have been applied with success. But now more than ever, more flexible (and faster) decisions are required in complex construction projects—where change of scope is frequent, and the need for new factories is crucial to remain competitive.
Project management for Arctic infrastructure presents unique challenges, including transportation, accommodations, supply chain issues...and polar bears. The need is great and the resources are few—but the rewards are unique and fulfilling.
Managing a capital project is not for the faint of heart. Navigating the complex web of planning and execution requires an understanding of many aspects in the project delivery lifecycle. One key approach for PMs is to focus on achieving operational readiness once the project is complete.
Great construction projects deploy great project management strategies. What are the common project management qualities of these great projects—the DNA of construction greatness? This article investigates important lessons learned based on a review of some great historical projects that shape the world’s skyline.
