MASTERCLASS | 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 operational phase. Paired with the current under-investment in contract management, this is likely to be impairing value and creating risk.
This masterclass will comprise a roundtable of like-minded public sector contract management professionals who are responsible for long term, complex, service contracts.
The discussion will cover topics that include: resource requirements, systems, risk management, performance management, variations and knowledge management.
This masterclass will be limited to a small group of participants with an expectation of sharing pain points, experiences, potential solutions and opportunities for improvement.

MASTERCLASS | FUTURE CITIES STRATEGY 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 | 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.

MASTERCLASS | ASSET MANAGEMENT AND OPTIMISATION
The majority of cost in complex heavy assets like infrastructure is spent in the operate, upgrade & maintain phase of the asset lifecycle. However, acquisition (Capex) and operating (Opex) decisions are typically made in isolation of each other and without effective consideration of system wide impacts and service delivery. This compromises the outcomes that can be achieved through these major investments and leads to the need for further significant investment later in the asset lifecycle.
Today’s access to real-time granular operating data, together with our ability to build models that allow us to analyse systems and run scenarios to predict service outcomes now provides the opportunity for a new era in asset management & optimisation across the whole life of our major asset investments.
But getting to a point where optimal Asset yields are achieved requires organisational skills and operational maturity. Developing these capabilities involves going on an Asset Management maturity journey. That starts with building the capacity to meet regulatory and compliance requirements, then moving to delivering on enhanced business needs reliably and consistently, before moving to a maturity that delivers enhanced service outcomes and prepares to deliver on the business needs of tomorrow.
Where is your business on the journey from compliance to optimising asset performance? In this interactive masterclass we will use local and international case studies to discuss entry level to evolving best practice in making investment and operating decisions for complex infrastructure assets.
