Formulating your Critical Path

Having now been introduced to the simulation, KPIs and project scenario, this is your first opportunity to work together with your team to plan your project and set up your critical path. Take this “front-end time” to consider priorities, approach and strategy.

 
 
11:30
Team Module #1: Intervention

Developing your team’s confidence. A large shutdown/turnaround project is daunting and many teams lack experience. In this model, the team learns to constantly monitor progress on many different and moving frontlines, developing situations, unforeseen events, near-misses, to name but a few. Learning to act quickly, safely and with commercial regard, are all part of the teams remit. Setting up the initial foundations and critical path will provide the direction that the model takes for the entire exercise.

Debrief of Module #1: How to Challenge a Critical Shutdown/Turnaround Project

Share your experiences and thinking from module #1. How does this compare to real-life experience? Would you do anything differently? Take part in active discussion with your team mates and other group members, and discuss the objective feedback of our expert trainer.

 
 
2:30
Team Module #2: Scoping

Through continuously reviewing scope and workload, the team’s goal is to optimise the content of the project. Scope can be at the same time hugely predictable and uncontrollable. The team has to learn how to balance the two seemingly conflicting aspects.

Debrief of Module #2: Optimising Scope of Work by Risk-Based Methodologies

Scoping is probably the single most important element of controlling a TA. Share your experiences and thinking from module #2. How does this compare to real-life experience?
