IPA invites you to its inaugural half-day Capital Project Effectiveness Seminar Series to be held in 2009 across Australia. The seminars will present current IPA research that shows that projects executed in Australia are costing more and taking longer to execute than the same projects executed by their global competitors and peers. Drawing from research based on projects executed in the refining, mining, chemical, government, and other sectors, the series will discuss the importance of capital effectiveness and governance in the current economic downturn and will explore the gaps in performance between projects executed in Australia and those executed globally. The seminars will also identify the Best Practices for excellence in capital project defi nition and delivery and will show how the implementation of Best Practices can increase the performance of your projects in terms of cost and schedule outcomes. The seminars will also discuss cost estimate validation and cost control, exploring the underlying benefits of having good estimating practices and robust cost control systems that deliver.
