Risk Management for A/E Firms

PART 1: Risk Drivers
Gain a clear understanding of what causes claims. Because risks are present throughout the entire project cycle—from client acquisition to project close-out—managing them is a constant activity. Based on a large body of claim data, this course identifies the technical and non-technical causes of loss for design firms. In this course, you’ll develop a better understanding of the dynamics of risk, learn the key areas that influence your firm’s risk, and gain strategies to anticipate, manage and respond to risk.

PART 2: Claims Case Study Workshop
This interactive session will study an engineering actual interstate highway claim. Program is designed to help engineers readily spot risks, identify opportunities to use loss prevention techniques, and decrease your firm’s exposure to claims.

Owners, principals, project managers and other firm personnel who work with contracts.
