Registration is complimentary.


It’s well known that the construction industry lags other sectors in technology adoption, productivity and predictability.  Deloitte notes that Construction invests just 1.5% of revenue in IT, less than half of the average for all industries.  And while Digital Transformation is important, it won’t address all challenges, especially those particular to culture and human behavior.
As a result, the industry’s ability to accurately predict cost and schedule outcomes has been severely restricted, massively impacting the bottom line of many organizations, as well as management and investor confidence.  Given Wall Street speaks the language of predictability, executives must attain fluency on the subject.  They must demonstrate leadership by institutionalizing proactive behaviors modeled by revamped incentive programs.   Rather than traditional Variance Analysis, incentives should be driven by predictable delivery.  Simply put, a project delivered with a 30% overrun learned 20% into a project duration provides ample time for course correction versus one learned 90% through.  Effective course correction results in reduced cost and schedule variance, i.e. improved predictability breeds better project control.  And better financial outcomes.
In this workshop, you’ll:
  • Learn about the Construction Industry Institute’s (CII) Predictability Index and its role in improving projects performance 
  • Discuss how your business and the entire construction industry can increase shareholder value by making measurable improvements in Predictability.

  • Participate in interactive sessions on how to achieve Enterprise Projects Performance, enabled by EcoSys’ new Predictability Indices.
