Infrastructure Projects are largely intended to benefit the general public, and usually, the government is the Sponsor. Thus, Infrastructure Development Projects have a varied spectrum of Stakeholders. A delay in such Projects - for instance, the construction of a road, a power plant, or a water reservoir- can have negative implications for the population and may even result in political and economic issues at the national level. This webinar will look into various reasons for delays in infrastructure projects as well as mitigation proposals. Information Technology, Procurement, Production, Human Resources and even Consulting related projects are usually part of an Infrastructure Portfolio, so this Webinar is also relevant to professionals looking to improve these processes.
