Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Forum - 171114

 "U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) transforming to Risk Informed Decision Making"
Presented by  Deborah Hesse Scerno, Sr. Environmental Planner,  South Atlantic Division, US Army Corps of Engineers

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.

Presentation Details

Currently USACE project and program management meetings focus on milestones and Scerno-Deborah-Hessebudget, especially on whether or not they will be met.  Discussions in those meetings often focus on the cause for an increase in cost or a delay - but rarely do they focus on the risks that were considered in the decisions that were made leading up to those increases or delays.  

On June 2, 2017, James Dalton, Director of Civil Works, released a memo entitled "Further Advancing Project Delivery Efficiency and Effectiveness of USACE Civil Works."  Within the five tenants he proposed are several mentions of risk informed decision making and timely problem solving.   This talk will briefly discuss USACE current project and program management and how incorporating risk informed decision making could possibly change USACE and USACE project and program management.

Light refreshments and beverages will be provided.
