Mega projects will always create a sense of excitement and trepidation when being considered as a proposition. They carry with them the hopes and aspirations of society, investors and the economy due to their scale and impact. However, they also raise concerns over their real benefits and whether the risk is worth taking? 

The average client project sponsor lack the skills and expertise to lead such an undertaking. They regularly employ project managers to take the load and often forget that it is they who have the delegated authority, or the constant need for change, that dictates delays and eventual slippage. This book attempts to close this knowledge gap. Its targeted at those who are executives in client organisations, charged with the responsibility for sponsoring a ‘mega’ project; seeing it through the strategic planning stage; onto program development; and eventually into project implementation leaving a legacy that goes far beyond the boundaries of the physical build.

It stimulates the readers thinking by challenging the ‘norm’ with key subject matter, revision questions, case study analysis, and alternative methodologies, that have been proven to be successful by the author over the past 20 years on some of the biggest and most complex ’mega’ projects in the world.  

From its introduction as to what ‘mega’ projects really are and why they continually fail with serious consequences. It introduces the reader to what is meant by client sponsorship; what it takes to be an executive leader; the transparency of project governance; whats involved in strategic procurement; why we build excellence into performance improvement; and how we create a sustainable future through progressive organizational strategy using collaborative workings, and innovation techniques, to ensure we deliver a successful ‘mega’ project.

In conclusion, this book will act as a reference guide to tomorrows future leaders and broaden their horizons that will change the way we manage complex infrastructure meet the ‘triple bottom’ line of social, economic, and environmental needs. That is the true measure of success!
