Collaborating to manage risk and delivery”

Friday November 1st

Devonport House, Greenwich,London

Collaborative procurement techniques are gaining ground, and many case studies have shown us how they can create added value. But we also need to look closely at how collaboration can enable a team to manage the risks that so often derail project delivery.

King’s College London, with the ACA and the Alliance Steering Group have put together this one day conference to explore examples of how collaborative risk management and project management sit at the heart of safe and efficient procurement.

We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr David Hancock, Construction Director at the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, who brings a wealth of hands-on experience from his risk management work on Terminal 5 Heathrow.

In addition, Professor David Mosey of King’s College London will lead a workshop examining lessons from the results of six years’ research into what works, and what does not, when collaborative intentions might collide with the harsh reality of potential claims and disputes.

Our workshops will also explore:

  • -what are collaborative risk management and collaborative project management in practice?
  • how can tendering criteria other than lowest price lead to improved value and risk reduction?
  • how can delivery under modern methods of construction be improved by strategic planning and joint risk management?
  • how can digital technology convert risks into opportunities through collaborative procurement?

This conference will offer essential insights for construction clients, consultants and contractors working in any sector and we hope to see you there. The conference fee is £150 which includes materials and a buffet lunch, with an early bird price of £95 for bookings paid for by 31st August.
