Information


The management of large-scale projects presents huge challenges to public procurement staff.

The majority of large-scale projects are facing cost overruns and time delays in nearly every stage of the process, which is due to their inherent complexity and numerous interfaces. Hence, procurement professionals and project managers in charge face a central question: how can we avoid falling into traps and successfully manage our projects from the beginning until the very end?






Plan your large-scale projects wisely and mitigate risks at an early stage.

A public entity will never be able to prevent any possible threat from taking place, but there are strategies that at least minimise the chance that they emerge during the process. In this seminar, our experienced speakers will guide you through the successful planning of a large-scale project, its implementation, and the execution of the contracts.

  • Save considerable time and money through proactive project management
  • Learn to identify risk areas systematically and how to tackle them in practice
  • Secure the success of your project, instead of facing a reputational damage



What will you learn at this Practical Seminar?
  • How to identify, manage and prevent risks in the public procurement process?
  • Why is risk management a key factor for the management of the procurement in your organisation, and what are advantages for you?
  • How can you set up successful risk management strategies and processes that meet the needs of your organisation?
  • What kind of problems and pitfalls will you encounter when purchasing goods and services?
  • What are effective mitigation measures, and how do you implement them in practice?
  • How can you prevent leakage of sensitive information that provides companies with a competitive advantage?
