Promoting, studying and implementing AWP in Europe: The Concord®-Centrale Lille partnership has launched!
I am pleased to announce that we have officially launched Concord®‘s exciting new partnership with Centrale Lille in France. I visited the university this fall for a formal kick off, and work has now begun on our five-year collaboration to promote, study and implement Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) in European capital projects.
The centrepiece of this partnership is a comprehensive benchmarking study of European capital project performance, followed by the introduction of AWP and Predictability Thinking™ for complex industrial and renewable projects. With the support of our leading academic partner, Zoubier Lafhaj, Concord® will provide practical assistance in the implementation of AWP in several projects in France and we will embark on a co-certification of Concord® Academy with Ecole Centrale de Lille.
I was also pleased to provide a lecture about capital project performance, Predictability Thinking™ and AWP as part of a three-part series on the subjects of digital twin, sustainability and project predictability. I learned a great deal from my co-presenters, Remi Dornier of Dassault Systèmes and author and environmental policy expert Fabrice Bonnifet, of the Group Bouygues.
