This presentation provides insight and guidance to key stakeholders, from leadership to shop floor, on why turnaround alignment is important. We will also explore the major causes of gaps and misalignment, including lack of understanding of the complexity of turnaround projects; integration of maintenance, operations, inspection, and capital work that occurs during a turnaround event; different perspectives of typical work vs. turnaround work; managing stakeholders’ focus on urgent vs. important; awareness of strategy and plans; and understanding of the true business impact of a turnaround. It’s important that all participants and stakeholders understand these alignment issues and implement measures to close the gaps early in their project. This will pay off exponentially when you execute your turnaround event.
