It will also cover tools for avoiding and analysing issues in disputes, and for resolving disputes quickly with minimum cost.A case study will be used to help participants gain a better understanding of the potential problems and risks arising due to project delays. The case study will conclude with illustrations of how best practice programme management techniques and optimisation strategies can be effectively applied to help in the recovery of the delayed project.

Managing people, in general, can be frustrating and demanding on ones time and can result in increased stress levels, especially when we are so consumed in our daily work processes. Very often, project managers, site supervisors, facility managers and building executives are hassled by their site agents, subcontractors, material suppliers and building tenants over all kinds of issues and problems relating to inadequate site facilities, slow work progress, poor building maintenance, high rental fees, etc. Normally, people who lack effective management and interpersonal skills would only exacerbate such situations. Furthermore, the stress of handling difficult people and challenging situations can result in low productivity, low morale and high absenteeism within the team or an organisation. The 2-day experiential workshop aims to teach participants practical solutions to effectively manage people by considering (1) what makes people difficult (2) how we could communicate effectively and manage peoples expectations, and (3) strategies for dealing with difficult people and situations.Through interactive activities, role play and case studies participants learn how to apply the provided tools coupled with their interpersonal skills to deal with all types of work behaviour problems. Towards the end of the workshop, you should be able to develop a personal action plan that helps you manage your team more effectively.
