Why Choose this Training Course?
This PetroKnowledge training course addresses the need for professionals in the Oil & Gas industry to manage and control projects. An in-depth treatment of project uncertainty enables delegates to tackle the economic challenges facing the petroleum industry and use effective risk planning and management techniques to support effective decision-making. This ability to control projects is further enhanced through the establishment of effective project governance systems to establish key performance indicators and measure project progress.
Key highlights of this training course are:
- Identification of the stages required in the risk analysis process, i.e., preparing, modeling, and running risk analysis.
- Development of the risk model, assessing probabilities to various variables, risk analysis, and explore the impact of uncertain variables.
- Enable the participants to perform quantitative risk management techniques and conduct data-driven decision-making using probabilistic profitability indicators.
- Exploration of the concept of value and value-driven project management
- Definition of key performance indicators, metrics and reporting dashboards
- Examination of effective governance mechanisms to support planning, execution (change) and performance management
- Application of core planning techniques
This comprehensive training course consists of two modules which can be booked as a 2-week Training event, or as individual, 5 Day courses.
What are the Goals?
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate attitudes to uncertainty and apply decision tree analysis and other risk management techniques
- Gain skills in the application of specific risk management simulation software package
- Conduct an economic study on petroleum related projects
- Use economic terms and concepts applied in the oil & gas industry to select appropriate projects
- Create Key Performance Indicators & establish additional metrics to measure the increasingly complex nature of modern projects
- Compose effective dashboards and scorecards to report project performance
- Apply generally accepted project management techniques to establish and control an integrated project plan baseline
