The Art & Science of managing the Dynamics

at the Workplace (delivery end)

Wednesday, 15 March 2017: Mumbai


India, is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and has a great potential to grow in every

sector. Construction industry is the backbone of development and indicates healthy trend of a growing


Infrastructure building is very essential for a Country’s Economic growth and progress. Real Estate &

Housing is an integral part of this process. For many reasons, the housing construction lagged much

behind the needs of the population and even in whatever was built, the builders are holding unsold

inventories because the prices are unaffordable. The high input costs come primarily from Land,

Regulations, Government Taxes, Unsold Inventories, Marketing and Financing. The construction

aspects also fell short in terms of Cost, Time and Delivering Safety, Quality and specifications.

However in relation to the other things, construction was treated as less significant and hence not

given due attention which it should be.

With the initiatives now taken by the Government of India to incentivise and regulate this sector,

construction aspects will determine the Cost & Demand of Housing and thereby the Market share and

overall performance of the Companies. Those organisations which are currently delivering genuine

value to the customers, will excel and grow rapidly.



? Affordable housing projects granted infrastructure status

? Highest ever allocation to infrastructure development (INR 3.96 lakh crore)

? Reduction in holding period from 36 months to 24 months for long-term capital gains on

immovable properties

Construction Delivery — — —

In this scenario, managing construction at the workplace on a ‘Day to Day’ basis to drive Safety,

Quality, Adherence to Specifications, Cost and Time becomes very essential. Construction Engineers

need to understand the Dynamics of the work place and learn to manage them on Real time to

enhance deliveries on a day to day Basis. For improving the workplace management, CII Naoroji

Godrej Centre of Manufacturing Excellence is organising a one-day workshop on ‘Delivery

Management in Construction Sector’ on Wednesday, 15 March 2017 in Mumbai.

Knowledge & Skills are essential for Productivities & Outcomes but Deliveries happen only when

these find proper application at the workplace. So unlike most training sessions, this one does not aim

at enhancing the Trade Knowledge & Skills of the participants but instead attempts to bring an

awareness in them that unlike in Manufacturing; Projects & Construction are activities with high levels

of Uncertainties requiring a lot of Planning & Coordination on a daily basis. It will also equip the

participants with the techniques and processes for enhancing Applications (and thereby Deliveries)

with whatever quality of resources available. This workshop is not prescriptive, it encourages the

participants to use their Skills & Creativities to find solutions to issues at the work situations. All with

the single objective of enhancing the project deliveries and outputs for the day.


This Workshop will start with reviewing and understanding jointly with the participants, various

Construction Inputs – both Physical and Functional.

The next stage would be to understand the Dynamics of the Workplace and the ‘Causes & Effects’ as

a consequence of the Actions and Inactions during the Day.

The concluding part of the workshop will be touching certain Site based Processes & Activities for

Improving the quality of the resources for giving enhanced Results.

A brief introduction to a longer term External Intervention on the Site to achieve sustained and

enhanced Deliveries through Implementation workshop would also be discussed.

To achieve the objectives of the workshop (Improved Delivery Management) within the time frame of

one day, all activities of the building coming up in various phases of the Construction will not be

covered (although we can discuss as a few Case studies if participants will bring up something of their


The workshop will also demonstrate the Dynamics on the Initial Activity of Concrete Structure (which

is more challenging) and this approach and thought processes can then be extended to other phases

and items of the building project.


At the end of the workshop, the participants will be more aware and clear as to what influences

Deliveries & Outputs and the need for Planning, Coordination and Motivation for all the team players.

They will be able to deliver substantially more with relatively lesser efforts.

The organisations will stand to benefit since Higher Productivities & Project outcomes consistently

would mean stepped up performance and growth. Improvements in Construction is not only going to

reduce its Cost and time and bring credibility in terms of safety, quality and Workmanships but

indirectly, this will favourably influence other aspects like financing, marketing, customer satisfaction,

branding and so on.


? It will help you to minimise the cost by optimum utilization of available resources

? It will reduce irrational approaches, duplication of works and inter departmental


? It will certainly encourage an innovation as well as creativity among the construction


? It will provide competitive strength to the enterprise

? It will also lead to “maximum production at least cost”. A good construction management,

results in completion of a construction project with in the stipulated budget

? It will provide an importance for optimum utilization of resources. In other words, it help

you for the completion of a construction project with judicious use of available resources

? It will also offer your organisation the necessary leadership to motivate the employees

which is quite required for completing the difficult tasks, well in time and it will also help you to

extract potential talents of the employees

? It is extremely beneficial to the society as the effective and efficient management of

construction projects will avoid, Costs Rise, Wastage of Time & Resources, Unlawful

Exploitation of Labour and Pollution of Environment
