MASTERCLASS 1 | FUTURE CITIES AND PLANNING
Governments are grappling with the transition to innovation-based economies, rapid and sustained population growth in urban centres, and rising infrastructure costs to meet growth – and they are responding through Precincts.
Successful activation is based on understanding the key elements of an innovation ecosystem, the location-based decision making factors for innovation, the Precinct’s comparative advantage in attracting market investment and the place-based investments that accelerate activation. This masterclass will dive into developing ‘fit for purpose’ delivery models – including vision, governance, planning and delivery – that realise activation targets and understand the emerging trend to adopt innovative commercial structures that accelerate development and enable Government to monetise a greater portion of the value created through Precinct development.

MASTERCLASS 2 | CONTRACT MANAGEMENT
Maximising outcomes and benefits, delivering value for money, and ensuring the Supplier and the Principal meet their obligations, is at the heart of good contract management. The significant investments in contestable procurement are often diminished during the transactional phase. Paired with the current under-investment in contract management, this is likely to be impairing value and creating risk.
This masterclass will dive into how good contract management can enable effective management of legal and statutory requirements, obtain financial savings, ensure the contract value is maintained and the service outcomes are achieved.

MASTERCLASS 3 | ASSET MANAGEMENT AND OPTIMISATION
Infrastructure asset management can be optimised through predictive technologies that draw on existing asset baselines, integrated and innovative data models to inform future decision making. Asset management and optimisation in the public and private sectors should align investment to strategy and service outcomes. However, Capex and Opex decisions are typically made in isolation of each other and without effective consideration of system wide impacts and service delivery. What if there was a different way?
Today’s access to granular operating data, together with our ability to build models that allow us to analyse systems and run scenarios to predict service outcomes resulting from our capital investment and sset management decisions, provides the opportunity for a new era in asset management & optimisation. These models allow us to more effectively optimise operations to trade off and effectively balance service, operations and cost drivers.
In this masterclass we will discuss evolving best practice that will allow us to make investment and operating decisions for complex infrastructure assets at a system-wide level, be it precinct, city, state or national. We will showcase existing models to demonstrate the concepts and discuss what participants would like to see in terms of capability to address their business issues in this exciting space.

MASTERCLASS 4 | DIGITALLY DELIVERED INFRASTRUCTURE
Digitally delivered infrastructure is more than simply the use of technology in delivering a project. It represents a fundamental shift in how a project is designed, constructed and operated, providing an opportunity to gain safety, efficiency, and significant financial benefits.
The challenges associated with the delivery and operation of complex infrastructure in today’s marketplace have a common thread; the effective use of real-time data and analytics. Digital – when integrated and used effectively – has the potential to add significant value. With investments into Digital solutions expecting to increase to between 8% and 15% by 2040, how will you harness the value of digital disruption?
In this masterclass we will be discussing the Digital solutions journey from digital strategy through to design, delivery and optimisation, and understanding where value is likely to be harnessed as soon as today or tomorrow.
