ePM’s OPD™ Workshops enable companies to overcome the most common source of business uncertainty – human performance
ePM’s OPD™ workshops teach the science and methodology to engineer superior organization performance. Our unique and proprietary approach uses simulation models, expert facilitation, scenario planning, and virtual team rehearsals to design exactly the right organization for the work. Participants truly understand human performance drivers, minimize uncertainty and maximize business value.
Major Capital Projects
These workshops are designed for the owners and leaders of large-scale, complex capital projects. We show you how to engineer exactly the right organization for every phase of your project.
New Project Design
Start your major capital project right by building the foundations of success into the DNA of your team. This workshop improves on best practices in project management by engineering and testing the performance of the organization against the work breakdown structure.
Project phase transitions are fraught with risk. This workshop builds upon basic organization engineering to help you lead successful phase transitions by proactively adapting your teams to evolving work and business needs. Readiness Workshop
Project Performance Improvement
Getting diverse teams to work together predictably is a formidable challenge. The Team Integration Workshop enables workers to locate themselves within the project and understand how their responsibilities and behaviors must mesh with others’. Team Integration Workshop
Leadership effectiveness is maximized when managers view the organization as the context for their leadership. The Leadership Development Workshop is designed to bring managers face-to-face with the realities of the teams they lead and help them creatively explore alternative leadership processes and styles.
Process Facility Turnaround
Facility turnarounds put time, money and safety on the line. This workshop provides a safe environment to rehearse, stress-test, and contingency-plan every aspect of your turnaround. Turnaround Planning Workshop
Business transformation workshops help you meet the most pressing challenges of creating positive and sustainable improvements in performance. They enable you to engineer, rehearse and stress-test new business models, processes and organizations before implementation.
Beyond Commitment-Based Safety
Commitment-based safety programs have proven unsustainable. Continual effort yields diminishing returns and commitment turns into cheerleading. Often, the only difference between an incident and a catastrophe is luck. Risks can be eliminated. Failure is neither inevitable nor acceptable. Learn how thought leaders and innovators are changing the game by engineering their safety organizations for success.
This workshop teaches the essentials of building predictable performance into the organization. Avoid the costs of continually adjusting the work, redesigning the organization, and replacing people who “aren’t working out.”
New Ventures, Mergers and Acquisitions
Bringing two different business cultures together is a formidable and frustrating leadership challenge. Learn how to scientifically engineer predictable performance into the organization structure, build effective communication systems and overcome cultural barriers.
Learn how to make change management a thoughtful, effective and positive experience for your team by understanding and exploiting the organization’s inherent mechanism and abilities for communication, decision-making, and collaboration.
