To improve project planning and scheduling standards and achieve consistency across their entire project portfolio, Leighton Contractors, one of Australia’s largest contractors has deployed a single enterprise instance of Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM.

This is supported by both a Primavera Framework called the ‘Leighton Group Planning Framework’ (LGPF) and a standard Controls and Planning process. The LGPF defines how planning and scheduling data is managed within P6, whilst the Controls and Planning process defines the standard planning process, methodologies and deliverables within Leighton Contractors.

To ensure the success of this initiative, Leighton Contractors turned to Prescience Technology to deliver a high quality and consistent customised Primavera training program.

The Challenge

Pivotal to the successful implementation of this initiative, was embedding a strong understanding of the LGPF framework, integrated with Leighton Contractors’ core Project Planning and Management System – Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM. Leighton Contractors needed a robust, competency based, blended training program for their engineers, that was founded on strong adult learning principles. The organisation’s scale, diversity and geographical reach meant the training program needed to address the following key challenges:

  • Rapid deployment capability to allow for training of engineers as they mobilise to new projects.
  • The delivery of Instructor Led Training across geographically diverse locations.
  • Maximising Instructor Led Training value whilst keeping the course duration to a minimum.
  • Ensuring understanding of, and commited use of the LGPF by all Primavera users.
  • Consistent learning outcomes to enable each trainee to fulfil their role requirements.

“In implementing this training we needed to make sure that all engineers involved in project planning and scheduling, regardless of their role, location or maturity, could learn this discipline and use Oracle Primavera P6 in a consistent way. For our management team the aim is to deliver improved visibility, predictability and consistency across all projects.”
