Chapter Meeting - July 2020 - Improved Project Controls – Learned Lessons with Allan Crow


For this event attendance, PMI Members will earn 1 Technical PDU.

Allan will run through a typical engineering-focused progress reporting cycle found across many large projects delivered in Australia. He will explore the real goings-on and how reporting numbers are administered as they are passed up the chain of management.

He will then expand on the importance of understanding project structures within the various dispersed project controls tools.
