Managing Uncertainty in Megaprojects

Jun 21, 2018 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Underperformance is a common threat to megaproject managers and the track record of cost and time overruns in these projects is well documented. While front end planning is important, not all events and scenarios can be foreseen when the project can take several years to complete and may involve many companies and stakeholders. In our research we find that the capacity to adapt to this uncertainty during the life of the project is crucial for megaproject performance but it is often overlooked as a capability. Using a case study of the construction of a US$20 billion dollar project we show that project leaders play an important role in recognizing when a plan needs to change and then navigating the path onto a new project plan without disrupting the delivery of the project.

Shaping your Intercultural Project Leadership: How to Leverage Cross-Cultural Challenges in your Project

by David Colliquet, Robert de Quelen
March 06, 2018 | 61:58 | Views: 6,401 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.23 / 5

Intercultural gaps threaten many projects. National cultures, job cultures, enterprise cultures, generational cultures: any gap in those components can lead projects to face culture clashes…and additional problems. Yet, project managers can not only actively manage those gaps, but also leverage them and thus extend leadership skills. This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.
