Why did Shell, one of the world’s largest companies, turn to the Concord Academy to train a key team?
Why did Shell choose the Concord Academy to train the team working on its Deep Water Gulf of Mexico Portfolio? A presentation at the online 2020 AWP Conference gave some important insight into the company’s motivation, goals and outcomes. For the first time, Shell’s Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) leaders Jay Moser and Noah Smithwick teamed up with O3 Solutions CEO Josh Girvin to discuss their response to COVID-19, and part of that response was improved training.
The leadership team said they wanted to be proactive in managing the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. They wanted their team to learn the benefits and value of Workface Planning, to be trained in best practices, to get access to templates, tools and materials that make it possible. They wanted it online and self-paced to fit with today’s fast-changing reality.
After taking the course, one construction planner said: “The course has given me a good foundation to build my planning skills on and a better understanding of what a key importance a good planner brings to a project.”
Here’s the best part: the Concord Academy isn’t just open to global companies like Shell. Our training is accessible to any company or individual who is interested in being proactive and learning the benefits of Workface Planning and Advanced Work Packaging, at their own place, without leaving home.
Join Shell and the hundreds of other capital project professionals who have taken advantage of the world’s first self-paced, online training and certification program for capital project professionals.
