In this interesting master class Herman van Heerden discusses the core competencies necessary for an owner team with Freek van Heerden and Kevin Mattheys.

You will learn:

  • The origins of  the “owner team” which came about as owners lost certain in-house competencies in favor of total outsourcing of projects
  • The importance of good leadership in the owner team (sponsor)
  • The importance of understanding the real business need and staying aligned to this through the project
  • Why scope development is so important and why changes need to be controlled and well communicated
  • How to select the people on the owner team who are the owners’ representatives and independent of the engineering or managing contractor
  • The importance of communication and alignment throughout each stage of the project
  • The most important role of the contractor on a project
  • How risk should be distributed between the owner and the contractor.
  • How to determine which specific competencies can and should be outsourced
  • How to implement appropriate governance between the owner and the contractor,  and make sure owner team representatives are properly mandated for their important role
