Abstract

Management of Large Projects is extremely challenging and few large projects meet their performance targets for a variety of reasons.  The panellists have wide backgrounds in project management (ranging from management, corporate organization, owner, review, oversight and litigation) in nuclear and non-nuclear applications.  They will participate in a discussion of Managing the Risk of Large Projects, fuelled by a question and answer format.  The intention is to have an open forum that will be entertaining, informative and useful.  The session is expected to cover a broad range of project risk topics.  The panellists will start the session by offering their perspectives of managing project risk as follows:

  • Augusto Patmore, Partner KPMG LLP – Large energy independent project reviews – Cost estimating and management challenges
  • Brett Plummer, VP Nuclear & CNO, NB Power - Utilities Risk perspective for Large Projects – Who controls what
  • Fred Dermarkar, COG President & CEO - Enhancing supplier performance through sharing of lessons learned
  • Philip Helmes, President Helmes & Co LLC – Disputes and Forensic Perspective
  • Sean Hagen, Senior Manager Sargent & Lundy Canada - Independent Project Oversight (IPO) - Guiding Principles
