Kerry and Jordan discuss the changes they have made to their #TrainingThursday studio for the new season – no more table! They joke about the challenges they face with the new setup. They then introduce a feature course called “Contractor’s Practical Guide to Change Order Pricing and Management,” which focuses on dealing with change orders in construction projects. They emphasize the importance of managing change orders to avoid financial losses and schedule delays. The course will cover topics such as understanding conditions that create change orders and the step-by-step change order process.

“Change is inevitable,” as the old saying goes. On construction projects, a more appropriate statement might be that “change orders are inevitable.” Change orders in construction projects are the most significant source of financial increases, disputes, and schedule delays for general contractors, subcontractors, owners, and consultants!
Are you losing money on changes, your schedule getting out of control, subcontractors not providing pricing on time, and owners not issuing change orders when they should? Are you leaving money on the table and overlooking recoverable change order cost items? The “Contractor’s Practical Guide to Change Order Pricing and Management” workshop will provide the contractor with valuable guidance and working tools for effective change order management to increase the effectiveness in preparing for change orders, simplify the process and boost change order approval rates. This workshop is a comprehensive and practical guide for managing one of the most critical areas of construction contracting: preparing, pricing, gathering, submitting, negotiating, and getting paid for all changes to construction projects.
Exclusive to this workshop is a comprehensive manual that is used as a reference and guide throughout the sessions, and is based on accumulated knowledge gathered over 40 years in the construction industry. It has over 25 example checklists, forms, and letters, and this workshop will guide the contractor through step-by-step procedures, checklists, forms, and letters that combine to create the blueprint for the successful submittal of proposed change order pricing and issuance of change orders.
