Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Project partnering is one of the most effective tools in the construction management process employed to deliver successful projects -- projects that complete on time, in the budget, safely, with the specified quality and have no outstanding disputes at the end of the job. Construction Managers are frequently the leaders in convincing owners to adopt project partnering and must be involved in the entire process if partnering is to be successful.  This webinar provides the results of a study concerning the cost and the success of project partnering with respect to minimizing construction disputes.

The webinar identifies the characteristics, the drivers, the phases and the elements of successful partnering. The obstacles to and potential downsides of successful partnering are discussed along with the benefits realized from successful project partnering. The webinar identifies and discusses eight case studies across the country to discover whether partnering actually reduces disputes & illustrate the"best in class" partnering results.
