Donna Festorazzi is Head of Programme Risk Management at Stantec and an internationally experienced risk management professional, with a multidisciplinary background. She believes that risk management insights should empower project teams to optimise delivery performance, rather than purely facilitate project-approval processes.
When you’re busy managing large projects, finding the time to assess your organization's ability to analyze and mitigate risk is not easy. It’s a technical, time-consuming procedure, but vital if you want your company to be working as effectively as possible.
Thankfully, we’ve developed a risk maturity assessment tool to do all the heavy lifting for you.
Shutdown projects, also known as turnarounds, planned outages or STOs are a distinctive and demanding type of project. Stakes are high, as is pressure on the schedule and project team. They are typically costly, short in duration, high risk, require a large number of human resources (including a substantial proportion of sub-contractors), and have a significant focus on HSE (health, safety and environment). The complexity of these projects dictates a sound process for planning and executing. Meanwhile, the pressure on schedule and overall duration turn them into the formula 1 of project execution and control.
We are excited to announce the release of Safran Project ILAP Gateway, a powerful solution supporting the ILAP XML Schema for project scheduling and control data exchange.
A project schedule is a prediction of future outcomes or states, for example: "by May 18th we will be 24% complete”. It’s a forecast of delivery date, project completion date, engineering completed, start of fabrication, start of construction, delivery of equipment and materials, planned and future performance, resource utilisation, resource availability and more.

Project success is frequently defined as the ability to deliver a product that completely satisfies the requirements of the customer, on-time, and on-budget.
To help project leaders achieve this goal it's imperative they follow: 'The Five Immutable Principles of Project Success' – a set of guidelines that act as a framework to search for answers in any number of different scenarios and situations.
Change continues to be the defining feature of European capital project management in 2017. Throughout several industries, including oil and gas, engineering and construction, and the public sector, major internal and external forces are driving forward change, requiring industry leaders to rethink strategies.
