Master universitari (II livello) / Project and contract management in construction works

L’obiettivo formativo del master è quello di insegnare i più importanti mezzi e tecniche di project management sia a ingegneri che a architetti. Oggi è sempre più fondamentale sapere come un progetto debba essere gestito dal suo principio fino al termine, così da ottimizzare costi e tempi. Durante il master gli allievi saranno introdotti alla teoria del project management, della valutazione degli investimenti, e dei principi di contabilità aziendale. Gli allievi riceveranno tutte le informazioni necessarie per sostenere l’esame e ottenere le certificazioni PMI (Project Management Institute) e IPMA (International Project Management Association). Riceveranno altresì tutte le informazioni necessarie per sostenere l’esame e ottenere la certificazione NEBOSH HSE in Process Safety Management. Gli allievi riceveranno tutte le informazioni necessarie per diventare Lean Green Belt Project Leader. E anche tutte le informazioni necessarie a diventare project manager certificati in Italia con Accredia. A tutti questi strumenti di PM verranno affiancate nozioni più specifiche di gestione dei contratti, delle riserve e dei ritardi nelle opere civili e infrastrutturali. La necessità di tecnici (ingegneri e/o architetti) che diventino competenti nella gestione dei contratti e delle riserve e che possano eseguire un'analisi dei ritardi in conformità con le norme internazionali comunemente applicate è sempre più urgente tra i maggiori general contractor in Italia e all'estero. Il nostro mondo globalizzato richiede che i professionisti coinvolti nella gestione dei contratti e delle controversie sappiano affrontare complesse questioni tecniche e allo stesso tempo conoscere gli aspetti giuridici coinvolti. È fondamentale per i professionisti con un background prettamente tecnico conoscere le "regole del gioco" sull'arena internazionale. Pertanto, dovrebbero conoscere i principi fondamentali del diritto civile e comunitario, nonché dell'arbitrato internazionale, unitamente alle più comuni norme per i contratti internazionali (FIDIC, JCT, NEC, AAA) e le molte complesse questioni tecniche e legali nell’analisi e nella gestione dei ritardi e delle varianti di costruzione.
Le opportunità di lavoro offerte a chi abbia acquisito le conoscenze e gli strumenti presentati durante le lezioni del master sono molteplici e variegate: imprese di costruzioni, società d’ingegneria, sviluppatori immobiliari, general contractor, enti pubblici, ecc. necessitano e sono alla constante ricerca di project managers che abbiano approfondito gli aspetti di natura legale necessari per un’accurata e efficiente gestione dei contratti, delle riserve, dei ritardi, e dei contenziosi. Molti rinomati general contractor, società d’ingegneria e grandi produttori hanno già confermato di essere estremamente interessati ad assumere tecnici equipaggiati con le abilità e le conoscenze che il Master fornirà.

Introduzione al value averaging / An introduction to value averaging

Ogni persona / professionista dovrebbe pianificare la propria situazione finanziaria come fa un'azienda: il fatturato corrisponde allo stipendio di una persona, i costi aziendali corrispondono ai costi per vivere della persona e della sua famiglia, il fcf (free cash flow) di un'azienda corrisponde al contante che una persona riesce a risparmiare ogni mese. Esattamente come un'azienda deve investire il proprio fcf per crescere, così una persona deve sapere investire i propri risparmi che generare una situazione finanziariamente solida e sicura nel lungo termine. Le tecniche del Value Averaging costituiscono uno strumento utile per ottenere questo risultato.

FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

Every person / professional should plan her / his financial situation as a company does: the turnover corresponds to the salary of a person, the company costs correspond to the living costs of the person and her / his family, the fcf (free cash flow) of a company corresponds to the cash that a person manages to save every month. Just as a company must invest its fcf to grow, so also a person needs to know how to invest her / his savings in order to generating a financially solid and secure situation in the long term. A value averaging investment strategy is useful to achieve such a goal.

Divenire project manager certificato / How to become a certified project manager

Il nuovo Codice degli Appalti, le Linee Guida ANAC n° 1, n° 2 e n°3 e lo schema di DPCM per la definizione dei requisiti tecnico organizzativi per l’iscrizione all’elenco delle stazioni appaltanti qualificate (art.38, comma 2, del d.lgs. 50 del 2016) del febbraio 2018, enfatizzano di fatto l’importanza dell’attività di project management sia per i RUP che per i partecipanti agli appalti di lavori e/o servizi di ingegneria e architettura.
Allo scopo esiste la possibilità di essere certificati come project manager ai sensi della Legge 4/2013 (“Disposizioni in materia di professioni non organizzate”) e della Norma UNI 11648:2016 ed essere iscritto nell’apposito elenco di Accredia.
Ma come si può divenire project manager certificato in base alla legge e alle succitate norme? Bisogna ammettere che l’iter per i potenziali candidati appare spesso confuso; quali sono infatti i percorsi per raggiungere l’obbiettivo certificazione, e quale è il percorso ottimale, e quali prospettive può dare la certificazione di project manager?
Il presente modulo didattico intende fornire ogni informativa indispensabile per un’adeguata partecipazione all’esame per la “Certificazione di terza parte” di project management in conformità alla Norma UNI 11648:2016 ai sensi della Legge 4/2013, esame da effettuarsi presso un organismo di certificazione accreditato da Accredia. I PM certificati saranno iscritti nell’apposito registro Accredia, così come previsto per legge.
Il modulo propone innanzitutto i riferimenti della legge e delle normative in relazione agli obiettivi di cui sopra. Il docente illustrerà con adeguata documentazione perché convenga essere certificati come project manager ai sensi della Legge 4/2013 con l’inserimento nell’apposito elenco di Accredia, sia per i RUP, per i liberi professionisti e società d’ingegneria e imprese. Infatti, negli appalti - sia di servizi che di lavori - gestiti con il criterio dell’offerta economicamente più vantaggiosa, i punteggi relativi agli aspetti organizzativi sono premianti con la presenza di figure quali i project manager certificati.
Infine, allo scopo di un adeguato allineamento al corso relativo all’applicazione del project management nel campo delle strutture e infrastrutture, il docente ha previsto case studies - in cui egli stesso è stato project manager o consulente per il project management - tipici dell’ingegneria civile strutturale, edile ed infrastrutturale, e ciò quale viatico per guidare i partecipanti alla prova orale di cui sopra.

FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

The new procurement code, the ANAC Guidelines No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 and the DPCM scheme for the definition of the technical and organizational requirements for registration in the list of qualified contracting stations (art.38, paragraph 2 of Legislative Decree 50 of 2016) of February 2018, actually emphasizes the importance of project management activities both for ORs and for professionals involved in civil and infrastructural works and / or engineering and architectural services.
And that is why there is the possibility of being certified as project managers in accordance with Law 4/2013 and the UNI 11648:2016 Standard, and be registered in the appropriate Accredia list.
But how can you become a certified project manager according to the law and the aforementioned standards? Admittedly, the process for potential candidates is often confusing; what are the steps to be taken in order to achieving this certification, and what is the optimal path to follow, and which prospects can a project management certification offer?
This didactic module aims at providing all the necessary information for an adequate participation in the exam for the so-called "Third party certification" of project management in compliance with Law 4/2013 and UNI 11648:2016. This exam is to be carried out at by a Body of Certification officially recognized and accredited by Accredia. Certified PMs will be registered in the appropriate Accredia register, as required by law.
This unit first introduces the students to the law and regulations. The teacher will explain with adequate documentation the reasons why it is convenient to become a certified project manager and to be included in the appropriate list of Accredia, both for the ORs, for professionals, for engineering companies, and companies in general. In fact, in all those contracts managed with the criteria of the most economically advantageous offer, both for construction works and for architectural/engineering services, the scores assigned to the organizational aspects in any bid tend to be higher if and when certified project manager figures are involved.
Finally, for the purpose of adequate alignment with a course about project management in the field of civil and infrastructural works, the teacher will discuss case studies in which the teacher himself has been project manager or consultant for project management activities. These case studies are meant to give the students practical knowledge that might turn out to be very useful during the exam to become a certified project manager.

MASTER ACQUISTABILE
IN MODALITÀ E-LEARNING
Ciascun allievo del Master avrà un suo account personale per accedere alla piattaforma Moodle (tra le più diffuse al mondo nel settore dell'istruzione online). Qui troverà un'interfaccia chiara in cui visionare tutti i contenuti didattici delle lezioni, l'elenco delle attività, il calendario, e i contatti dei docenti. Dal suo account potrà partecipare attivamente alle lezioni in modalità SINCRONA (intervenendo e facendo domande tramite chat, esattamente come se si trovasse in aula) o rivedere le lezioni videoregistrate quando più lo riterrà opportuno (alla sera, oppure durante i week-end), e scaricare il materiale didattico in pdf, in modalità ASINCRONA. Le ore di lezione si terranno in orario infrasettimanale, secondo calendario prestabilito. Nei mesi successivi al termine delle lezioni sarà comunque possibile visionare tutti i contenuti dei corsi in modalità asincrona e dedicarsi allo studio individuale, all'approfondimento dei contenuti dei corsi e alla stesura della tesi di master.

FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

Each student will have access to her/his own personal account on the Moodle e-learning platform (which is among the most widely used platform globally for online lifelong learning). Here the student will find all the videos of the lessons in streaming, all the teaching material downloadable as pdf files, the calendar of the lessons, and the contacts of all the teachers. Through her/his own personal account each student will be able to follow the lessons in two ways: the SYNCRONOUS WAY while the lessons will be made in the classroom and the student will be able to participate as if she/he were present; and the ASYNCRONOUS WAY after the videos of the lessons, the teaching material, and the contacts of the teacher will be uploaded on the platform, and there will remain at disposal of all the students every hour of the day, every day of the week, and for the whole duration of the master. Therefore, even after the end of the lessons, all the students will have many more months to access their personal accounts on the platform and delve as deep as they deem necessary and useful into the contents of all the lessons. Until they write and defend their master thesis, and finally graduate.
