Engineering & Construction Management Meetup
Topic: Australian Capital Projects and covid-19, what is your Action Plan?
Welcome to our First event
We are thrilled to be holding this event and honored to have a special keynote speaker who is an icon in the field of construction and risk management. He will present an important hot topic during these challenging times.
Although the initial plan for this meetup was for it to be held face-to-face, due to the current restrictions on social gatherings we will be running this session on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83431619486
About the topic:
While the full commercial impact of the COVID-19 on Australian construction sector will become more apparent in the next few weeks or months, there are many questions about the magnitude of a potential wide range of impacts, their expected timeline and correlations as well as possible mitigation actions which organisations should put in place now. There are many ways to assess the organisation’s risk exposure and while there is no right or wrong answer, the speaker will highlight the importance of having a comprehensive commercial risk assessment on project schedules and cost estimates, preferably as quantitative and scenario-based as possible, enabling a risk-based mitigation action plan being developed and implemented. Even though the situation, its circumstances, and boundaries will change, leading organisations need to put processes and action plans in place now and then monitor and update regularly as needed.
