We’ve all heard that setting priorities in our personal lives is key to achieving our goals.

Some of us hire personal coaches to get our lives in order, but when it comes to what we do within the office, all that planning goes out the window.

Organizations today are running at a much faster pace than ever before. We have technology glued to us at all times so that we can quickly respond to things.

But should we really?

This month we will talk about the benefits of prioritizing our days both at home and at work. We understand that you don’t always have control over the priorities that may be set for you in the office, but we will discuss some strategies and approaches to gaining clarity of purpose when your supervisor says something is urgent or if you are feeling like you have too many projects on your plate.

In the last session, we asked the attendees to submit relevant scenarios to discuss with our panel of experts. During our practice session, Diane & Brenda will share these experiences and strategies to help you get your time in control.

Note:  The NEC4 family of contract was completely updated in July this year. This independent review highlights the (mainly) good, the bad and ugly changes in the update.

NEC4 Suite Of Contracts reflect procurement and project management developments and emerging standard. This emerging best practice improves flexibility, clarity and the ease of administration in the civil engineering and construction industries, and also the power, water; oil & gas; IT and consultancy sectors.

The NEC family of contracts is now not just used widely in the technical engineering and construction industries and consultancy sectors both in the UK and abroad.

It’s original objectives were  aimed to:

  • Be more flexible in terms of what it can be used for and the contract strategies that can be adopted;
  • Have greater clarity and simplicity, so that it is easier to understand and use; and
  • Stimulate good project management.

NEC4 – the fourth edition – of the family was launched in July and has since been subject to a fair amount of review. This two part webinar identifies and reviews the changes made as well as highlighting changes that have not been made.

The second webinar looks at the changes which affect contract strategy e.g. additions to the family; alterations to main payment options and changes made to the secondary option clauses, including the dispute options.

This part of the NEC4 webinar series, will focus on the changes in the Engineering and Construction Contract with a focus on the payment, programme, early warning and compensation event clauses.
