Closed Loop Consulting will again be running a Master Class and presenting one of the Keynotes at both MRO OPS/IT Conferences. This year, we will be introducing Marcus Carr, Closed Loop’s Director of Projects, to the pressure of the Keynote to amplify his discussions from Bangkok last year. Since then, we have received a bit of comment about Marcus’ article as connectivity gains more momentum. There is a lot going on in ARINC and with a number of the suppliers regarding this aspect of EFB and some effective capabilities in the pipeline. Ask us for an appraisal by clicking here. His comments at our cocktail party were particularly well received by the airlines present and we know many of you desire more information about how to leverage your EFB projects to the maximum extent possible.

We have also updated the Master Class as a result of some feedback from last year’s conferences. This year, we will be focussing on a roadmap framework for EFB projects. Over the last 12 to 18 months, we have been concentrating on addressing the structural issues behind EFB project difficulties within the industry. This year we are going to discuss our suggested program frameworks and the components to help you build the benefits, develop a rigorous approach to requirements and why that is absolutely critical – and then, manage the change necessary to succeed with your implementation programs. All of this is designed to put you in control. This year the Master Classes will be much more detailed and will be relevant to a broad range of operational domain projects including EFB and MRO system implementations.

Bangkok, October 16/17

We will be hosting another evening function at the Bangkok event. We will liaise with the organisers to determine the best opportunity to allow the maximum review time at the displays but also ensure that those wishing to attend will have the best opportunity. If you are coming to either of the conferences, let us know in advance and we will make arrangements to spend some time with you, focussed on your company so that the conference benefits to you can be taken to the next level.


London, October 1 & 2

Closed Loop Consulting is pleased to have accepted the invitation to Chair this inaugural meeting in the series. We will be providing further comments here as the conference approaches.
