NEC3 Doctor’s Surgery
Duration ½ day
Why you should attend this workshop?
Often the most effective way to embed learning is through sharing real, local and relevant experiences with colleagues at your workplace - 80% of learning happens outside of formal training courses! The session aims to bring together formal training with lessons learnt on the job.
Session 1: Awareness Session. Objective: To give a balanced overview of the NEC3 family of contracts and how it helps deliver to time, cost and quality (or better).
Session 2: Inter-active Question & Train session. This session builds on Session 1 now that participants have a broad awareness of the NEC and what it aims to do. It is intended to be highly interactive. Objective: For participants to choose which aspects of the NEC3 family they want to learn more about – both in contractual interpretation and how to tender and deliver work under it - in order to gain most from the day from their perspective. The number of aspects chosen will affect the time spent on each.
