A message from the GWSB MS in Project Management Program:

On behalf of The George Washington University School of Business’ Master of Science in Project Management program, we invite you to the third annual workshop on megaprojects.
The workshop aims to bring together scholars and practitioners to further our collective understanding of megaproject performance and its relation to fundamental decisions on governance structures, development processes, procurement strategies, product designs, and environment changes.

What is a high-performing megaproject? Performance is a notion to ourunderstanding of the megaproject phenomena and toadvance the debate on this complicated organization form for producing capital and designed assets. Performance is also a fundamental notion in the practice of megaprojects, and thus, in the exercise of leadership and governance megaprojects. Paradoxically, our understanding of megaproject performance is still emerging. Aside the traditional econometric cost-benefit analysis, the notion of a high-performing megaproject remains surprisingly ambiguous and prone to misconceptions.

Making sense of a high-performing megaproject is the theme of this year’s workshop.

Attendees receive 8.5 Professional Development Units (PDUs), 0.85 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), or 10.2 Continuing Professional Education (CPEs) hours for their attendance.
