Course Outline

(2 days)

Increasingly, organizations choose to have specialized experts manage their projects from design to completion. For an Owner, outsourcing these activities can be beneficial, cost-effective, and productive. But the Owner / Project Manager relationship carries considerable risk as well. This risk can be minimized (and even avoided) by addressing key issues at the beginning of the relationship and managing them throughout the project. Legal Secrets for Effective Project Management examines the typical problems and legal disputes which arise in Project Management and provides participants with the tools, knowledge, and insight necessary to successfully safeguard against them. Both Owners and Project Managers will find this course valuable.

The Course will cover:

The Owner – Project Manager Relationship

The Roles, Responsibilities, and Liabilities of Both Parties

The Project Management Contract

Managing the Independent Contractor as Project Manager

Key Clauses and Requirements for All Project Manager Contracts

Liability for Loss and Damage – Is Insurance Enough?

Managing Change Orders and Directives Lawfully

Ending a Project Management Relationship

And more!
