Seminar by John Koontz
Topic: “Creating Highly Effective Foreman/Project Manager Partnerships”
THIS CLASS IS DIRECTED TO BOTH PROJECT MANAGERS AND FOREMEN (AKA: FIELD LEADERS). TO BE SUCCESSFUL, THIS CLASS MUST BE ATTENDED BY A RELATIVELY EQUAL NUMBER OF PROJECT MANAGERS AND FOREMEN.
It's never been more difficult to make a profit on construction projects than in today's market. Fewer projects means more bidders and lower profit margins; budgets are much tighter but customer expectations remain just as high. Therefore, project managers and foremen have no margin for error and must be on the same page from project beginning to end and operate as one. To do this successfully, a highly effective and inseparable partnership must be forged between the project manager and the foreman before the project begins and continue to strengthen as the project progresses.
In this session, John Koontz will identify and explain the top 10 components that define a great partnership. He will then show how these components specifically apply to critical project management topics such as planning, scheduling, cost control, productivity, fabrication, contract management, documentation, change order management, customer management, and servant leadership.
This session will place a special emphasis on why the following critical project activities must be jointly created/developed by the Project Manager and the Foreman:
- Mechanical Project Schedule
- Labor Budget/Labor Cost Control System
- Fabrication/Coordination/CAD Plan
- Safety/Risk Management/Control Plan
John will provide a very interactive session that clearly portrays why all wildly successful projects have two highly effective servant leaders, a foreman and a project manager, who understand the importance of working hard to develop a strong project partnership.
