Webinar – Introduction to the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI)

Jun 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

How can you improve scope definition and reduce project risk?

Find out how your project teams can leverage the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) to objectively assess their progress on scope development, and work collaboratively to identify gaps and risks early in front end planning – before detailed design and construction begins!

During this live presentation, we’ll start by addressing an underlying question “How does improved scope definition deliver increased project performance?“

Next we’ll discuss the relationship between front end planning and project performance, introduce the Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) and the impact it has on scope definition during front end planning, explain how PDRI is used and how it delivers immediate results to your capital program including:

Improved cost & schedule performance
Cost savings of up to 25% and schedule reductions of up to 17%

Increased team alignment
Regardless of whether you represent the Owner, a consultant, or a design contractor

Better risk transparency
Clearly communicate project risks and action items to all stakeholders groups
