Overview
Avoid common pitfalls in large-scale projects using these smart strategies

Over half of large-scale engineering and construction projects--off-shore oil platforms, chemical plants, metals processing, dams, and similar projects--have miserably poor results. These include billions of dollars in overruns, long delays in design and construction, and poor operability once finally completed.

Industrial Megaprojects gives you a clear, nontechnical understanding of why these major projects get into trouble, and how your company can prevent hazardous and costly errors when undertaking such large technical and management challenges.

  • Clearly explains the underlying causes of over-budget, delayed, and unsafe megaprojects
  • Examines effects of poor project management, destructive team behaviors, weak accountability systems, short-term focus, and lack of investment in technical expertise
  • Author is the CEO of the leading consulting firm for evaluating billion-dollar projects

Companies worldwide are rethinking their large-scale projects. Industrial Megaprojects is your essential guide for this rethink, offering the tools and principles that are the true foundation of safe, cost-effective, successful megaprojects.
