Align stakeholders, generate insights, and improve performance
IPA facilitates workshops to enable effective discussions on critical project-specific topics at any point in the capital project life cycle. These workshops are designed to be highly collaborative and result in organizations achieving alignment on common goals, and identifying key activities, tools, and templates to effectively carry the project forward.
New Technology Commercialization Workshop
Establish the Foundation for Delivering Successful New Technology Projects
New technology commercialization projects take longer to start up, require more contingency, and often take longer to reach steady operation than projects using proven technologies. The New Technology Commercialization Workshop is a highly collaborative session to help organizations quickly ramp up their knowledge in this area specific to their project and technology, and establish the foundation for delivering innovative technology on a large scale in the most commercially economic fashion.
Front-End Loading (FEL) Workshop
Establish a Robust Plan for Developing a Well-Defined Project
IPA research has shown that Front-End Loading (FEL), or project definition, is one of the most significant drivers of project success. The FEL Workshop helps organizations develop well-defined projects that cost less, take less time to execute, and operate better.
Business and Engineering Alignment Meeting (BEAM) Workshop
Build the Foundation for Effective Project Planning
IPA data show that alignment between business and project engineering is an essential precursor to achieving good and effective project definition or Front-End Loading (FEL), and driving more predictable and competitive project performance. Use the BEAM Workshop to align critical project stakeholders on business needs, objectives, and constraints to enable efficient and effective FEL.
Asset Optimization Workshop (AOW)
Convert Your Oil and Gas Resource Discoveries into Competitive, Cash-Flow Generating Assets
Developing oil and gas production projects that are optimally scoped, functionally aligned, and competitive is a challenge for many organizations. By bringing the business and project teams together, the Asset Optimization Workshop effectively steers a development project through FEL 2 (Select).
Concept Selection Workshop
Use Industry Data to Strategically Choose the Best Option
Using data improves the concept selection process. The Concept Selection Workshop establishes an understanding of the project concept and capacity choices relative to industry norms, given the specific project environment and opportunity characteristics.
Project Risk Workshop
Identify and Address Project Uncertainty
Understanding potential project risks early in development is critical to delivering successful outcomes. By comparing your project to industry peers, the Project Risk Workshop gives an unmatched view into potential risks and aligns stakeholders on how to address the challenges that lie ahead.
Contracting Strategy Workshop
Select and Develop the Right Contracting Strategy
IPA data show that problems with contracting strategies are regularly the root cause of capital project failure. Use a Contracting Strategy Workshop to evaluate project risks and select and develop the right contracting strategy to avoid costly mistakes.
Team Lessons Learned Workshop
Gain Insights to Drive Future Improvement
Learning from the successes and failures of previous projects is essential to drive project system improvement. Expedite this process with a Team Lessons Learned Workshop and rapidly generate project-specific insights and pave the way for project system improvement.
