Full Description

Session IV of the Fall Series on “The Role of the Facilities Engineer in Upstream”.

The key success factors for the facilities engineer of today: multi-disciplined, effective leader, collaborative; are perfectly matched to the characteristics of the millennials who will be taking on the challenges of major projects in the years ahead.

Project performance, never good, has not improved over the past 30 years, in spite of huge investments in PM processes, tools and organizations. The Facilities Engineer of Tomorrow can change all that.

This interactive presentation will challenge the attendee to define this future as it applies to them, and to gain a vision of the skills they can develop to be prepared for the exciting challenges ahead.
