This course will cover all key aspects of project changes and claims encountered throughout a project lifecycle. The focus will be on how to manage and control changes, take steps to prevent disputes and claims, and how to prepare claims. Different contract types will also be covered along with the required terms and conditions for project changes, disputes and claims.

This course will not follow the traditional lecture-style format, instead it will be an interactive hands-on workshop where after a brief slide presentation for each agenda topic the participants will work on several real-life case study scenarios directly related to the selected topics. The workshop will cover both onshore and offshore projects.
Project managers, project controls managers, project engineers, discipline leads, procurement managers, contract managers, and construction managers and supervisors working on large onshore or offshore oil and gas projects.
