The ECITB has held a follow up ‘master-class in collaboration’ for the oil and gas industry in Aberdeen following the launch last month of its Project Collaboration Toolkit.
This Toolkit – launched by the Offshore Project Management Steering Group (OPMSG) Toolkit with the help of the Oil & Gas UK Efficiency Task Force and the Oil & Gas Authority – is aimed at supporting the MER journey in changing behaviours in the sector and encouraging collaborative working across the project lifecycle.
The second initiative within the OPMSG Collaboration agenda saw the delivery a Behavioural Masterclass yesterday which focused on challenging the blockers which are being used to impede change and promote un-necessary expenditure in the sector.
Lynsey Benson, ECITB Senior Account Manager for Scotland, said: “In an era of rising costs, falling efficiencies, and the need to compete in a lower oil price environment, the sector needs to address the fundamental behaviours that drive cost escalation in the UKCS”.
The ‘Challenge & Change’ behavioural masterclass was delivered by Steven Carver, Cranfield University, and Myrtle Dawes, Centrica, to bring knowledge sharing and best practice from other sectors that have successfully changed their industry culture to innovate and ‘do things differently’.
The event has been filmed and will be edited into a ‘lunch n learn’ resource to be distributed across the industry as a complementary on-line tool on 29 September.
