When it comes to mixing O&M teams and capital project teams how can you promote goal alignment and performance focus?
In industrial facilities, small capital projects (under $10M) are largely undertaken to address compliance requirements (health, safety or environmental), planned equipment replacement, or plant modifications that will achieve a process improvement or de-bottlenecking. This means Operations or Maintenance are often the project sponsors for small projects.
One of the biggest challenges facing small projects is facilitating productive communication around scope requirements as a project transitions from an ‘identified project’ by Operations & Maintenance (O&M), to an approved project, managed by a project manager or project delivery team. O&M teams are usually under tremendous pressure and time constraints. They appreciate that a project team needs clear scope requirements, but often find it difficult to know just how, or in what format to best communicate.
We’ll be sharing a practical and structured methodology from the Construction Industry Institute (CII) built to align communications between Operations & Maintenance and project teams, and substantially improve scope definition.
If you’re in the Toronto area on May 12th, join us to take a tour of the Duffin Creek WPCP, network with Asset Management professionals and learn about tools and processes to help improve plant project outcomes.
We hope to see you there!
