In this, our Winter 2015-2016 newsletter, our two articles focus on disruption and productivity.

 

The first Article is an extract from my second book ‘“A Practical Guide to Disruption and Productivity Loss on Construction and Engineering Projects”, published by Taylor & Francis in July 2015.  The article/extract gives a general overview of disruption and productivity loss.

 

Our second article is titled, ‘Causation and Cause & Effect Analysis’. The article discusses proving causation and cause and effect analyses, particularly to demonstrate loss of productivity.

Sorry for the delay in issuing our Spring Newsletter; this was due initially in resolving some minor issues in my second book, which has now been published and is available at all good booksellers (and possibly a few bad ones!).  A copy of the Publisher, Wiley-Blackwell’s flyer is attached to this Newsletter.

The ‘second delay’, was a build-up of ‘work assignments’, but with ‘some midnight oil’, this ‘delay’ was mitigated.

 

In this, our Spring 2015 newsletter, we feature an article ‘Planning Tips, Programme Submittal and Acceptance’’. The article applies to Contractors/Subcontractors and Contract Administrators/Architects.

 

Our second article is titled, ‘Acceleration and Mitigation’, and is essentially an extract from my second book,

“A Practical Guide to Disruption and Productivity Loss on Construction and Engineering Projects”.

 

A further article on this subject will be included in our next Newsletter.
