Benchmarking for improved performance

  1. 1. Project Management Institute, United Kingdom 1 Benchmarking for Improved Performance Tim Podesta, MBA, C.Eng.F.I.Mech.E, MAPM https://www.linkedin.com/in/timpodesta/ timpodesta@aol.com
  2. 2. 2 What is benchmarking? • Benchmark - is a mark made by a surveyor on a post or wall to measure height • Benchmarking - is considered use of data to • Drive continuous improvement • Support realistic target setting • Create a culture of sharing and learning
  3. 3. 3 Park running benchmarks • Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in • Personal Best time by Course • Age weighted performance • Set realistic targets • Fun community event
  4. 4. 4 What type of projects are you working on ?
  5. 5. 5 Gas Pipelines
  6. 6. 6 Schedule Benchmarking: The pipeline has a low Metres/Day lay rate due to the terrain, brownfield working and numerous work locations. The line to be replaced is not continuous requiring the move around of the total spread numerous times. Poor Boy Spread (PB Spread) is a small spread used to complete difficult sections which works at a lower lay rate.
  7. 7. 7 PL Cost Benchmarking: The pipeline cost is higher than the benchmarks; due to more complex work scope, Brownfield working, interrupted work sequence and terrain challenges. WREP cost (excluding De-oiling & river crossings) compare similar to GPO standard metric average of $115 $k / in-km.
  8. 8. 8 External Benchmarking: The completed FEL Self Assessment using CII Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) tool. The overall score of 240/1000 (Lower score is better) indicates the project is well positioned for entering Execute Stage. This score is within the range for projects approaching final sanction.
