Course Overview

Turnarounds are the highest risk activity that we routinely perform in industry, but they are also an area of massive variability in approach and outcome. If turnarounds are not properly planned, managed, and controlled, companies run the risks of serious safety and budget penalties, costly schedule delays and negative impacts on customers.

This 3 Day In-person course is based upon the Carcharodon “best of the best” model of excellence for shutdown management. The purpose of the course is to use the Model of Excellence for Turnarounds and the principles of Challenge Planning to equip attendees with an advanced approach to Turnaround Management. The course is backed by area situations, high levels of interaction, group exercises and multiple case studies.
It will explore the underlying mechanisms and levers that shape a turnaround to demonstrate why we sometimes succeed or fail and introduce new conceptual approaches that can increase our chances of succeeding.
