Program Summary

Mega complex projects globally have experienced low success rate with major projects seen failing since 2000 due to absence of key governance features.


Focusing on lessons learned from mega projects, this powerful 2-day program feature massive case studies in the management of mega project risk, cost, and schedule. It provides an analysis of the difficulties in managing mega projects during each phase and over the life span of the project, while delivering useful lessons on why projects go wrong and what can be done to prevent project failure.


Beyond strategic case studies, you will learn how to use advanced tools and techniques to manage the scope and quality of multiple project teams concurrently - from using advanced financial management and capital budgeting to utilizing best practices in risk and change management in project management, this 3-day advance program will help you manage complex deliverables, issue changes, assess risks, maintain communications, and live up to expectations by making the most of the latest technology and software — and by avoiding common problems that can trip up even the best project managers.


Led by leading expert in the field, Beverly Hoenig, is an award winning co-author on Project Management: The Managerial Process. She has also been awarded for 100 Women of Influence Awards for 2015 by The Australian Financial Review and Westpac, and inducted to 2016 Businesswoman Hall of Fame.

With the global population surging, the pressure is on government departments that are required to deliver large and  complex strategic infrastructure projects in an environment of fiscal constraint where there is a high risk that financial results on future mega projects will continue to erode shareholder value and trust. 


The problem here is, large infrastructure projects suffer from significant under & upper-management of risk in practically all stages of the value chain and throughout the life cycle of a project. In particular area, poor risk assessment and risk allocation, for example, through contracts with the builders and financier, early on in the concept and design phrase lead to higher materialized risk and private financing shortage later on. 


Without in-depth knowledge and effective project handling, managing of mega projects process may lead to failure to meet performance expectation, poor client relationships and poor business reputation. In addition, business risk, potential liabilities and costs may be incurred due to ambiguities and even project failure. For instance, there was a lot of noise in the media about Wheatstone LNG projects in Western Australia, famous for a cost of more than $200bn that would hit budget or schedule. The overruns for this mega project have been blamed on labor cost (with a high dollar for most of the construction period), complex regulatory processes and lack of industry cooperation. 


An intensive two-day workshop designed to provide an advanced understanding of project management from a mega project perspective, lessons from previous mega projects experiences, and know-hows on application of best practice methods and approaches leading to successful mega project delivery. This interactive executive program will show you how to govern and manage effective mega and complex projects as well as review multi-disciplinary approaches drawing from case studies for in-house, outsourced or mixed business services to ensure delivery of high quality service standards for your company. The workshop will address concerns on effective controlling and processing in terms of budget and schedule performance, sophistication of management controls, reporting from contractors and risk management for successful project delivery. 


Led by Beverley Honig, who has over 20 years of project management experience in Australia and delivered more than 200,000 training courses globally, she will provide you with a solid insight and comprehensive PPPs framework and real-life case studies. You will also grasp the effective techniques and strategies to confidently manage and handle your projects’ processes, better control your risk assessment and achieve successful delivery of projects – while ensuring projects are value-for-money (based on the Public Sector Comparator), and the scope of services, bidding and key performance measurement parameters are clearly defined and carefully assessed. 


Packed with real-life case studies drawn from actual cases and interactive discussion sessions, you will leave this program with a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of project management in mega projects’ context. The development of some materials from scratch over long development cycles adds to the complexity of mega projects management.
