Maximize Schedule Certainty & Mitigate Risk Through Improved Cross-Stakeholder Collaboration & Cutting-Edge Systems

Project delivery models are becoming more collaborative, supply chains more integrated, and as a result, the way that clients and contractors approach the forecasting and management of resources needs to innovate to keep ahead of these needs.

Whether you’re an established leader looking to standardize your scheduling processes and develop a sustainable enterprise system or getting to grips with successful 4D modeling and improving your leadership skills, this year’s comprehensive program allows you to accelerate growth and innovation through enhanced processes, technologies, and culture.
