Course description

Managing Brownfield Projects - FPM42

Why is it so difficult to manage projects inside operating facilities? Keeping the scope from growing is a constant battle. Operations priorities and maintenance needs hamper work productivity. To be successful, brownfield projects need strong control, effective liaison, and good interface management. Experienced instructors will share tools and techniques that will help you work in this dynamic, operations-centric project environment.

Upon completion you will know how to:

  • Examine existing documentation and confirm field conditions to improve scope control
  • Frame a project and select the best concept for development
  • Coordinate the work effectively with operations, maintenance and shipping

Instruction, guided discussion, and in-depth work tasks based on the instructor's brownfield project management experience are used. The sharing of experience in this course make the sessions challenging and insightful.
