Using the Berlin ‐ Brandenburg airport construction project as a case study, David Myers, Senior Associate for Shirley Parsons Project Services, will provide useful insight on the importance of putting Quality Management at the heart of strategic planning.

All too often, consideration of risk when it comes to major projects centres on Health & safety, sustainability and other areas where poor management can create litigious situations, damage reputation or create serious outages. This presentation will leave in you in no doubt that poor planning and lack of focus on best‐in‐class quality management can lead to catastrophic failures in major infrastructure projects. The webinar will cover:

 The Berlin Brandenburg Story from the perspective of Quality Management  An exploration and analysis of the main failures  A summary of the cost of quality  Key considerations to design quality in at the project planning stage

Attend this webinar to gain an appreciation of the impact of poor quality on project success and a better understanding of how to ensure that best in class quality management practices are specified effectively.
