HKA collaborates with RICS to deliver best practice commercial management skills for infrastructure

HKA, one of the world’s leading providers of advisory, consulting and expert services, is working with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to successfully implement a risk module as part of its online Commercial Management Infrastructure Programme course.

The course comprises six distance-learning modules and is for construction professionals who are looking to gain a competitive edge in the infrastructure sector. It covers the essential skills and practical knowledge required to manage the commercial activity on an infrastructure programme successfully, whatever the size or complexity.

The programme launched in July 2017 with a cohort of students from the UK, Asia, Americas and Oceania, and awards 150 hours of CPD. The next instance of the course will launch in the spring of 2018.

Andy Allen, HKA Associate Director, said: “I was delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with RICS, and other key industry stakeholders, to develop the risk module for this much-needed course. We are giving construction professionals around the world the infrastructure sector context for commercial management, along with practical tools to make risk-aware commercial decisions.

“Our focus in the risk module is to help commercial managers understand the long-term value at risk for their clients and society, and helping them build the skills they need to set-up and support effective project and programme risk management in the infrastructure project environment, from the outset and through the life of an infrastructure programme.”

Ed Tooth, Brand Marketing Manager, RICS commented: “We designed the programme to help the industry deliver improved commercial capability within global infrastructure programmes, that will, in turn, secure future economic growth. The industry is calling for individuals who recognise the long-term value of infrastructure and can enable it today through effective commercial management.

“This course provides the technical and contextual skills required to successfully become commercial stewards for the next generation of global infrastructure, and covers collaboration, engaging with clients, supply chains, stakeholder management, costs and benchmarking, and of course managing risk.” added Ed.
