September Meeting Topic: The Evolving Discipline of Project Execution
As you know often times retrospective, forensic-based project controls systems are no longer effective with today's increasingly complex and faster-track projects. Bureaucratic and sluggish systems utilizing trailing indicators often elongate the resolution of project issues and often obscure them. Since duration-based costs represent a substantial portion of project costs, any time lag in identifying trends and getting credible information to decision-makers decrease the chances for a successful outcome. Using this evolved "Best Value Performance Measurement" execution approach utilizes focused and engaged personnel backed by consistent and responsive processes that deliver cost and schedule certainty through a more objective risk-centric, value-driven strategy.
Rich is a certified Earned Value Professional (EVP) with over 20 years of project management experience in both the private and public sector. Rich is on the AACE International Technical Board and the Chair of the Project Cost Control Subcommittee. Rich is currently working for AECOM's Energy, Infrastructure and Industrial Construction (EIC) group leading project controls efforts on design, engineering, procurement and construction projects for the oil and gas industry. His recent projects include simultaneously managing gas plant projects for mid-stream clients with a cumulative total installed cost (TIC) value of over a billion dollars. Rich has previously owned and managed several successful businesses including a tactical supply business catering to Special Forces units, a sports performance training business which worked with many elite Professional and Olympic athletes. Rich's entrepreneurial experiences bring a unique risk-centric perspective to performance management and this led him to devise the "Best Value" approach to performance measurement.
Networking will start at 6:00pm. Dinner and brief section news will start at 6:20pm. The main presentation on Recovery Schedules will start around 7:00pm. We look forward to seeing you for what should be a really interesting evening and another great meeting with our AACE association.
