Earthwork is a very important phase in construction and so it is mandatory to get this work done only by professional expertise who have great experience in this field.



Project Selection in Large Engineering Construction Programs

Wed, 08 Jun 2011 13:30:00 CDT

One of the most important steps in implementation of a program management approach is the selection of the projects which will comprise the program. This selection process, done appropriately, is neither intuitively obvious nor simple. Done poorly, the program may achieve less than optimum results or be exposed to risks which may degrade its value over time. Project selection must flow from strategy which in turn is defined by an organization’s strategic business objectives. Key performance indicators which are established to assure strategic business objectives are met, must cascade down through strategy assessment into overall project portfolio assessment and ultimately into individual projects



Project Pitfalls or the Audit Report You Never Want

Sat, 06 Sep 2008 22:30:00 CDT

Over the years I have read all too many project closeout reports, reports from turn-around managers on troubled projects, audit reports and project post-mortems. These reports have recurring findings that can be used to either guide effective management of a project or serve as a findings checklist for the auditor or other manager looking at a troubled project. Clearly an ounce of prevention is the desired course of action.



Failure of Financial Sector Risk Management as an Analog for the Engineering & Construction Industry

Thu, 01 May 2008 17:30:00 CDT

It was spring of 1827 and Robert Brown had just returned from collecting pollen in the Scottish countryside. A botanist, Brown placed some of the pollen in water under his microscope and observed the grains of pollen moving about completely randomly. That random motion, now called Brownian motion after its discoverer is a useful tool in studying truly random events. Many of today's risk models are founded on the principles of Brownian motion, at least as Robert Brown understood them in the spring of 1827.



Program Management Audit Checklist

Thu, 27 Mar 2008 12:30:00 CDT

The audit checklist attached is designed to complement other owner, program manager and contractually required audit checklists. The purpose of this checklist is to ensure that continued focus is paid on achieving the strategic business outcomes that the program is intended to address. It can serve as a template that can be tailored to a specific program's needs.



Strategic Risk Management: Establish Clear Metrics and Manage Risk Continuously

Wed, 26 Mar 2008 17:00:00 CDT

Risk is inherent to major capital construction programs.

The initial paper in this series defined a ten step process to guide consideration of program risks. Collectively, these interrelated processes contribute to successful strategic risk management.
