She speaks four languages and travels widely to promote AWP to the capital projects sector. Olfa splits her time between Washington, D.C. and Tunis. Practical, complete, step-by-step explanations to support new and experienced practitioners Advanced Work Packaging: Guide to Life Cycle Implementation is thorough, rigorous, and clear, informed by Hamdi's work with hundreds of front-line practitioners over the past decade. She knows the most asked questions and understands where organizations slip off track. Just some of the critical elements she explains include: - Exactly how to write and read a standard WBS number; - Precisely what information should be contained in high-quality, executable work packages at each stage of construction; - How to create work package matrices to surface planning anomalies before they become expensive construction problems; - What each person on the team is responsible for, and when; - Much, much more. Purpose-built to be used as a handy reference in construction-driven organizations Advanced Work Packaging: Guide to Life Cycle Implementation provides a comprehensive introduction to AWP and has been uniquely designed to be used as a reference for working capital project professionals and a textbook for colleges and universities. In her work with capital project teams, Hamdi discovered that even well-trained, disciplined and high-functioning teams often struggled with early AWP implementation because the volume of new information was difficult to retain. This book keeps key information in a single handy volume that can be used by all members of a team to maintain alignment throughout the entire project lifecycle.
