Change Order Management for Contractors

Change orders are a necessary fact of life in the construction industry, often comprising 10% or more of the total project cost. Poor change order management costs your organization money, time and energy. This doesn’t have to be the case! Learn effective change order management techniques that will make immediate improvements to your change order identification, pricing, negotiation, and approval process. Topics include: the underlying causes and the true cost of change, why early identification is crucial, direct and indirect impacts of change, negotiating strategies and tactics, and creating clear change order plans and feedback systems. 

This 2-1/2 hour workshop is designed for the entire project team, but is geared around contractors who are self-performing a substantial amount of their own work. This workshop is intended to be used as an idea generator, so your team can then brainstorm the ideas best suited for your company.
