Geoff Ryan, P.M.P
After several mega projects in Alberta, working as a productivity specialist for Fluor, KBR and Jacobs, Geoff started his own company in 2006. Over the last fourteen years, Insight-AWP has grown to a staff of 25 who have provided support for more than 45 mega projects in Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Australia and has grown to be recognized as the go-to service providers for Workface Planning, Information Management and Advanced Work Packaging.
Geoff served on the COAA Workface Planning committee for 10 years starting in 2003 and was one of the key contributors in the development of the industry model for Workface Planning. Working in support of the CII committees for Advanced Work Packaging, Geoff’s company hosted case studies for the University of Texas on several of their projects. While his day job was helping mega projects to be organized Geoff also worked evenings and weekends as an instructor for the Better Supervision program and taught project management through McEwan university.
In 2009 Geoff published his first book on construction productivity: ‘Schedule for Sale, Workface Planning for Construction Projects’, which sold more than 4000 copies worldwide. In the years after the first book was published Geoff helped his company and the industry mature from Workface Planning into Advanced Work Packaging, which led the publication of his second book in 2017: Even More Schedule for Sale, Advanced Work Packaging for Construction Projects. The distribution of both books has now surpassed 10,000 copies.
With three granddaughters and four adult children, Geoff’s life away from work is also busy and rewarding. In the little spare time that he has between work and family he likes to fly his Mooney airplane as a VFR pilot.
