Session title: Governance in mega projects
Synopsis: The session will start with articulating the drivers and needs of projects and the integral role that appropriate governance platforms play in the successful project delivery; the focus will be firmly placed on mega projects to make the case for project governance.
We will aim to examine different examples of governance frameworks, their roles and suitability in relation to different project delivery environments and project ownership models and examine the individual and combined benefits of governance tools and structures.
Finally, comparisons between recent past and current mega projects will aim to offer practical insights and explore the implementation of universal governance principles and bespoke governance approaches and the relationship between governance and project success.
