Job Cost, Labor Control and Post-Job Reviews

Lunch is served at 11:30 am.
Class begins at Noon.

In this seminar, we'll explore the most important aspects of project management that ensure your projects will run smoothly. As the tools and technologies for tracking these metrics evolve, the enduring challenge lies in understanding what to monitor, what to track, how to track it, and best practices for identifying, mitigating, and managing these crucial aspects.

Once the project is over, breaking down post-project cost and productivity data is one of the most overlooked tasks in our industry. It is also one of the most beneficial when performed diligently and accurately.

In this workshop, participants will learn:
  • The importance of the job cost report and proven methods for comprehensive monthly analysis.
  • Break down daily work activities, differentiating between direct installation, indirect operations, material handling, and non-productive tasks.
  • Explore the financial implications of gaining or losing just 30 minutes of direct installation time daily on the job site.
  • Best practices for the measurement and management of field productivity.
  • Identify the factors that improve labor productivity and develop strategies and tactics for their identification and implementation.
  • The importance and benefit of post-job reviews and how to conduct effective post-job review meetings.
  • Tips for optimizing the benefits of performing the post-job review.Learn how to leverage post-job review information for future project estimates and rough order of magnitudes (ROMs).

Target Audience: Project Managers with 3 to 7 years of experience, support staff or anyone interested in moving into a project management role or in obtaining fundamental project documentation skills.
