Human Capital & Talent Management for Public Sectors
18–21 May 2015
Cape Town, South Africa

The public sector faces more than just politics when it comes to succession planning; it also faces budget cuts and hiring freezes. The outlook for human capital in the public sectors is bleak: insufficient skills in the public sector; streamlining Government operations; non-integration and inefficiency in technology used throughout Government departments, fraud and corruption and the list goes on. Many public entities battle with the absence of efficient and effective HR delivery and practices in the business.
Talent development has been a key to the success of the Public Service, especially when it comes to filling of key positions at the public sector leadership levels. The future is one where we will have to learn to do much more with fewer people, and in less time. It will be harder to attract skill, engage and retain the people we want.
This course is designed to equip you to navigate the difficult times ahead and to avoid a human capital crisis in your organisation. It will help you to use proven strategies to fast-track the learning of your people – saving time and money. It will show how to extract more value from existing employees by helping them to be more innovative and resourceful. It will help you to identify and effectively address upcoming human capital problems and it will provide you with leading-edge models and tools to be a leader in people management practices.
This practical, hands-on course will have you excited by the new possibilities to drive performance in your organisation. The examples given are proven winners and the materials provide for easy adaptation to your business. Within 4 days of completing the course you can be forging positive change for your organisation and your people.

Project Scheduling, Risk Analysis and Cost Control
08-12 June 2015
Johannesburg, South Africa

In an increasingly asset-intensive industry, failure isn’t an option. Investment dollars must absolutely deliver on expectations. Environmental factors, market shifts, unforeseen engineering challenges, improper planning, overly optimistic goals, skilled talent issues, and a host of innumerable pitfalls and risks all have the potential to push ambitious efforts off schedule, over budget, and potentially offline. In challenging times, one failed project—a problematic exploration effort, a refinery plagued by equipment delays, or an otherwise on-track effort slowed by weather conditions—has the potential to jeopardize both short-term success and the company’s ability to further its long-term strategic goals.
How then do organisations prevent scheduling errors, define risk analysis and develop solid cost controls to ensure on time delivery and projects remain in scope? They do this through understanding best practice methods and learning in a safe environment before they execute in the field, regardless of industry or trade.

This workshop will prepare you to be proactive instead of reactive to project risks and scheduling issues. You will learn cost control modelling through proven best practice methods and case studies. As a group you will learn how to manage complex schedules, integrated master schedule plans and how to perform schedule analysis to determine critical path and critical chain processes. Throughout the 5 days you will master project scheduling, cost analysis and cost control. This foundation will lead to ways and methods of project monitoring and cost controls that can be used upon your return to the office. You will leave knowing you have the latest techniques to define, deliver and execute the project controls in your organisation.
