The Strategic Management of Large Engineering Projects

Shaping Institutions, Risks, and Governance

MIT Press

As the number, complexity, and scope of large engineering projects (LEPs)
increase worldwide, the huge stakes may endanger the survival of corporations and
threaten the stability of countries that approach these projects unprepared.
According to the authors, the "front-end" engineering of institutional arrangements
and strategic systems is a far greater determinant of an LEP's success than are the
more tangible aspects of project engineering and management. The book is based on an
international research project that analyzed sixty LEPs, among them the Boston
Harbor cleanup; the first phase of subway construction in Ankara, Turkey; a hydro
dam on the Caroni River in Venezuela; and the construction of offshore oil platforms
west of Flor, Norway. The authors use the research results to develop an
experience-based theoretical framework that will allow managers to understand and
respond to the complexity and uncertainty inherent in all LEPs. In addition to
managers and scholars of large-scale projects, the book will be of interest to those
studying the relationship between institutions and strategy, risk management, and
corporate governance in general.
