Keynote Address: The Past and Future of CPM Scheduling Dr. Dan
Patterson, PMP

An in-depth look at where our industry is progressing with regards to emerging techniques to better help us plan and track
large Capex projects. This will touch on both core CPM scheduling as well as earned value, risk management, 4D planning
and more. This thought provoking session will introduce "project Intelligence - ensuring projects are run as
businesses successfully achieving corporate objectives.

Session 1: Understanding, Analyzing, and Presenting the Critical Path


Jonathan Japka, PMP

Do you really know how to perform a Critical Path Analysis? Understand what the Critical Path really is and why its so
important. Learn the subtleties and overcome the challenges of analysis. Gain the knowledge to produce the best Critical
Path Report ever! Generate reports that focuses on what count, skills that will make your Project Manager proud! Topics
covered will include; driving predecessor, multiple calendars, parallel paths, secondary paths.

Session 2: Using Schedules to Make Projects Predictable Rob Newbold

In this presentation, Rob Newbold will bring a practical perspective to making projects more predictable, a perspective
gained from over twenty years of helping people to build and use schedules. Hell discuss why predictability is important,
some predictability traps people frequently fall into, and principles for achieving predictability. Along the way hell give you
numerous tested ideas that you can quickly apply to your projects to dramatically improve their predictability and your job
satisfaction.

Session 3: Case Study Use of Risk Techniques and Graphical Planning


Method (GPM) to Identify Probable Completion of a $1B+ Project Bruce
Stephan, PMP

This case study shares how a major transit agency approached how to plan acceleration on an extremely complex $1
Billion+ design-build contract that had consumed the entire time contingency early on in construction with 3 years worth
of work still remaining. It explains the unique approach they took to better analyze, understand, and plan to mitigate
known delays and future risks on the contract.

Session 4: The Value of Failure John Riopel, PMP

Even the best Project Managers/Business Analysts know that there are far too many outside influences to prevent the
occasional failed project. Many projects have failed badly and become very costly to the organizations concerned but was it
the PM/BA? A Project Management Systems (PMS) is expected to help project managers and the team members to
manage their projects more effectively and reduce the risks of failure, does it really? Does the PM/BA use the unsuccessful
project as a valuable learning opportunity to investigate, document, and share the reasons for the unfortunate event?
In this presentation we will examine the typical problems in a failed project, the PMS, the organization and other areas of
ineffective project management. We will also understand what a failure is, how to select and manage projects that might
fail, how to determine responsibility and what processes should be modified for success
Are you getting the MOST Value from the project failures? Is it good to have failures, along with successes? Failure is an
option, just know what you are looking for and what it means!

Session 5: The Value and Approach to Operational Efficiency Evaluations


Chris Carson, PMP

Operational Efficiencies are vital for corporate profitability and meeting goals. Efficiency evaluations are the best way to
approach operational efficiency improvements while aligning with the corporate goals of the facility.
Arcadis has performed operational efficiency assignments nationally and globally in 16 countries and for dozens of clients in
petroleum, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, and water/wastewater markets using a standardized cost-effective holistic
approach. This approach reviews processes from construction management to work order life cycle, evaluating and
benchmarking the various processes.
This session will provide an overview of a successful approach to performing an operational efficiency evaluation, and
provide lessons learned from two specific projects; a $170M pharmaceutical Capital Improvement Program and a $50M
annual petroleum operation, demonstrating savings in a range between 6% and 20% of budget per year from planning,
scheduling, budgeting, risk management, permitting, resourcing, contracting, and operative efficiency.
