AACE Hawaii Section Zoom Webinar – Parametric Contingency Estimating on Small Projects

Aloha CMAA Hawaii Members,

You have been invited by the AACE Hawaii Section to attend a Zoom Webinar. Please grab a virtual seat and join us next Thursday, July 23rd at 11am HST for a webinar presentation by Matthew Schoenhardt on Parametric Contingency Estimating on Small Projects.

Presentation: While mega-projects capture the attention of executives, shareholders, media and researchers, the sheer quantity of many companies’ “small projects” can eclipse the capital spend of a single mega-project.  For most companies, these small projects are the foundation of sustained and incremental profitability.  The size of “small projects” often precludes detailed contingency assessments by project managers while their puny stature renders them unattractive to academic research.  As a result many firms solve this problem by simply applying 10% contingency across the board to small projects, regardless of the project’s actual risk profile.

Please RSVP your intention to attend to:

Location: Zoom Meeting

Recommended practice 43R-08, Risk Analysis and Contingency Determination using Parametric Estimating applies historical empirical data to estimate contingency.  This Parametric contingency method has clear advantages over other AACE recommended practices for mega-projects including speed, accuracy and cost effectiveness.

Presenter Bio:

Matthew has over 20 years of project experience covering a broad range of industries including manufacturing, heavy industry, food processing, infrastructure with a particular focus on the oil and gas industry.  A big picture thinker with an intrinsic desire for logical, efficient processes, Matthew approaches projects from a business perspective with a clear understanding of the profit motive. With the mantra “predictability is better than perfection” Matthew has streamlined processes and developed coherent stage-gate processes. His natural affinity for numbers has

allowed the creation of world-class models.  In these, Matthew’s curiosity naturally led to a desire for better uncertainty, risk and contingency assessments.  After completing over $100B of assessments on hundreds of projects, Matthew is familiar with all methods of risk management.  As an expert in the field, Matthew is one of North America’s foremost practitioners of the parametric/systemic approach and published several papers on capital project risk management.  Despite his logical quantitative bent, Matthew is both effusive and engaging in demeanour and was ranked as the #1 overall speaker at AACE 2016.

Serving Our Community

Aloha CMAA Hawaii Membership,

CMAA Hawaii is always looking for ways to help our community. In the past we’ve held community service events that allow us to give back to the community in different ways, including cleaning up or beautifying public spaces. In light of recent events, we have been unable to organize these large group service projects but we know that we can still find ways to support our community, especially in these unprecedented times. With that in mind, CMAA Hawaii has made a donation of $1,000 to the Hawaii Foodbank. With so many in need we believe this is the best way we can support our community at this time. We thank all of you for your participation in past community service events and hope that we can all continue to find ways to support our community moving forward. 

Mahalo,

Providing All CMAA Members with Access to Four Free PDHs

Aloha CMAA Hawaii Membership!


Since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been hearing from our CMAA members and CCM about how this crisis is affecting their operations, and projects. With some, the impact has been far greater, and in others, construction projects continue with social distancing and increased safety protocols based on CDC recommendations.

But the one thing we have heard many times is the need to help find PDHs to maintain certifications, or to pursue professional development.

So to assist members, CMAA National is opening a selection of online, on-demand education library for free. These sessions are now available directly to you:

•             Building Moral Muscle for the Individual and the Organization
•             Lessons Learned from Generations of Women Construction & Program Managers
•             A Case for an Inclusive Culture, and Why It Matters
•             Aligning Tools and Technology for Project Success

Simply login to the CMAA website. Then search for “Focus19 On-Demand Conference Sessions – Full Set” in order to claim your four complimentary education sessions and PDHs.

Focus19 Conference Sessions

There are also Live Webinars on the CMAA National site that are available to all members with an active membership.
