January PD Session Wrap-Up

Last Friday (January 24), we kicked off our 2014 Professional Development series with a session focusing on a key component of construction management—time management.  Leo Sumner II, Principal and founding member of The Tiburon Group (tTG), presented an extremely informative presentation entitled, “Improved Project Control Through Scheduling”.  The program took the topic of project control to the next level, and provided valuable insights on industry practices (or lack of) from real-world experiences.  Leo provided tips on what to look for when reviewing schedules, detailed how schedules can be manipulated to hide delays, and other nuggets of information for anyone working with schedules that can be applied to single projects as well as programs of multiple projects.

As you can see from the photos, the lunchtime event was well attended despite the freezing weather last Friday.

As promised, we have posted the presentation to the Gulf Coast Chapter website—you’ll find it on our “Events” page (under Previous Events) or via link: Jan 2014 Presentation

We hope you find this information helpful and for those of you who attended, invite you to take a quick survey (2 minutes) on last week’s session.  You can access the survey here: Jan 2014 PD Session Survey. Survey ends February 13th and is completely anonymous. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Professional Development Session on February 14 focusing on the practical application of the General Conditions of construction contract documents.
