The large number of variables involved throughout the course of a project often prevents timely resolution of disputes. Many contracts are structured to evaluate impacts after they occur—when it is too late to mitigate schedule delays and avoid cost overruns. Many contract delays and added costs can be avoided altogether with proactive management. Beacon Group has developed and implemented procedures that address problems before they actually occur.
For those situations in which an event has already occurred and project completion has been affected, we can help implement procedures to facilitate the proactive, positive control practices required to ensure a successful project. This focused approach relieves the project staff from the burden of dwelling on past problems and encourages continual forward planning.
