In this presentation, Simon will demonstrate a practical and transparent approach to risk assessment, analysis and management, that allows risk to be usefully described and incorporated in the change process to increase awareness and ensure achievable benefits, costs and timescales. The presentation focuses on the project manager’s role in ensuring that the team collaborate and honestly express their beliefs about the risk to the benefits, costs and time-scales of the change initiative, as well as the project manager’s role in using the risk assessments to set realistic expectations and drive the change efficiently and with an awareness of the risk it faces.
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.
