Why do disputes happen in major projects? What can be done to avoid them?
Evening MeetingEtc. Venues/ Manchester
During the course of delivering major projects, disputes between project parties (at any level of the project structure) can and do arise.You need to be logged in to register for this event
Sometimes they arise due to unforeseen circumstances and external factors which are outside the control of the parties. But on occasion it is because of unclear or ambiguous contractual provisions; a change in key personnel; payment issues; the conduct of parties or changes to scope or requirements. Many of these are avoidable and it is crucial for project participants to understand why and how such problems may arise. Of greater importance is for project participants to understand how to avoid such disputes arising in the first place.
During the course of this evening meeting, our speakers will discuss their experiences of disputes on major projects, the impact which such disputes have had on the projects and will provide invaluable insight as to how, as an industry, we can avoid them. The discussion will provide the audience with the opportunity to share their own experiences.
