NEC4 Programme Workshop

Online Webinar


Why you should attend this workshop?

This one-day workshop introduces you to the key aspects of producing and managing a programme during the life of a project. NEC contracts have raised the bar compared to other forms of contract in terms of the importance, quality and level of detail of programming expected and the contractual part it plays in assessing change and delays.

However, it is essential that all team members including the project managers, commercial and anyone involved operationally understand the requirements and effects of managing programme requirements to properly carry out their specific functions. Everyone involved on a project should have an understanding of the current Accepted Programme under the contract and what it means to them on a day to day basis. This
workshop will provide a thorough review of general planning aspects and provide detailed information on how to manage the key programming matters in accordance with the contract. It will also identify specific new clauses that have been introduced with NEC4 that relate to programme, early warnings and compensation events Attendees of this course will have a much clearer understanding of the intent of the specific clauses related to programme and compensation events and in practical terms how they should administer them for the benefit of all parties on a particular project.
