Managing Construction Project Risk

Session Time: 
Sunday, May 19, 2019 - 3:50pm to 5:05pm
Field of Study: 
Management Services
Level: 
Basic
Description: 

Finance leaders may be good at constructing budgets and financial plans but budgeting and financial planning for construction can be challenging. Whether it's the fluctuating cost of asphalt, uncooperative weather patterns, difficult labor unions, or a less-than-financially savvy public works director, completing a successful project requires more than preparing a good budget. This session will explore the role that the finance office can play to create and maintain an effective construction project monitoring function and help reduce the risk of high-profile construction projects going over schedule and/or over-budget.
