One thing is certain when a project starts: not everything will go according to plan. Changes will always arise. These may be changes to the schedule, to the baseline, the contract, or even to the original business plan. How do you deal with these changes, and how do you make sure you stay in control? How do you determine whether a delay or change will lead to a claim? And how big will that claim be? How do you ensure that a claim does not lead to a conflict between, for example, the contractor and the client, and how do you ensure you are in a strong position if a conflict arises? These key questions are covered in this module.

Each large construction project brings new challenges. One of the challenges from a project controls perspective is to manage changes. The objective of this blog is to create awareness of the different levels of change during project execution and gives a brief answer on the following question: Which type of changes are we dealing with?
This training gives you the background and tools to deal with change in the right way:
- Identification of issues and changes
- First the basics are covered, namely change itself. How can you identify them?
- Contract and Baseline
- And how do you subsequently deal with such a change? We explain the different types of contracts and the role they play in the whole process.
- Project administration
- An often underestimated part of the project. A good project administration is worth its weight in gold and we will share all our tips and tricks on how to set this up in a solid way.
- Change Control
- Being able to properly control changes in your projects is, of course, what the whole course is about. Now that the basics are in place, we will show you how to best deal with change and make the consequences manageable.
- Claim Management
- Claims are becoming an increasingly common aspect in projects, but what are they exactly? In this section we will elaborate on this.
- Apply Delay Analysis Techniques
- Avoid discussions about how much time/money can and may be claimed? We explain the different techniques to calculate this and the results can sometimes be more different than you would expect.
