Managing Daily Work

Risk Workshops

Risk identification and management is a key activity in any project. Feeling that you have identified all the relevant risks and know what to do about them will largely ease the burden of managing the project. If this is not performed correctly, the success of the project is seriously jeopardized as some of the risks may (and will) turn into critical failures.

This one-day workshop is aimed at bringing a complete project team together in a practical exercise of identification and planning for risk. This is best performed early in the development phase of the project so that a good basis can be established and a common understanding and agreement as to the manner in which risks must and shall be managed throughout the project.


Requirements Engineering

An overview of techniques related to eliciting, defining, documenting, analysing and tracing requirements for an engineering project. If the requirements are complete (or the problem areas are identified) and well understood and prioritised, the project has a larger chance of success than if the requirements risk remaining incomplete, fuzzy or misunderstood. This is a practical approach which aims at providing some simple steps towards being able to start an engineering project based on clear understanding and common agreement on the requirements with both the customers and the engineering staff.

The workshop is aimed at bringing together the key engineering staff and can be focused either on a theoretical approach with key members from different projects and organizations (two day workshop), or it can be practically aimed at the requirements of a given project, using a real-life internal requirements document (three days).


Quality Engineering

This day workshop works at ensuring that the concept of quality is understood by the people who need to do the work and know how to implement quality requirements. This workshop aims at bringing together an engineering team and assisting them in laying out the key principles of major practices such as:

  • Defining quality
  • Engineering quality
  • Measuring quality
  • Assuring quality through audits and appraisals
  • Achieving quality through reviews and inspections


Estimating is one of the most difficult tasks that a project manager needs to undertake. In this session, attendees will learn to use a number of simple tools and techniques that will allow them to improve their estimating abilities with minimum effort. They will also understand the different types of things that need to be estimated in order to have a valid final result.

Estimating the size of developments is considered as critical in all aspects of engineering, with the exception of software. As a consequence, many software development groups miss out on a fundamental component required for estimating and tracking their progress.

This is a two day workshop aimed at project managers and key engineering staff.
