We have even shared some research on these types of projects from leading global organizations and universities.

How to lead mega projects to success – part 2 (with videos English + Arabic)

Every once in a while we focus on a certain topic and write a few articles about. Recently, we had a few posts with videos on terminology differences, and before that, we cover agile for capital projects. The most recent posts have been about large-complex, or mega projects.

We have to admit, today’s post might reiterate some points from earlier posts — AND — it is also a bit commercial in nature since it is related to a learning program that SUKAD has developed and is offering to deal with the challenges of mega projects.

Why are project owners afraid of project management?

I am writing this article with the feeling that I am either courageous or stupid since what I will write about might be touching many or stepping on people soft toes.

I must start by saying, I am writing this article based on observations from working in this region (West Asia, GCC) for close to 17 years; observations, not scientific research. Therefore, I accept and welcome a challenge from the types of organizations that I will highlight today. Continue reading

How to manage large and complex projects?

Case studies, failures, successes, and capital projects

This is a summary blog!

We have recently been publishing on case studies. In the last two weeks we published four case studies and we had published another one in the past.

The following is a list of the blog posts specific to case studies:

  1. Case Study | A failed PMO implementation
  2. Case Study | working across continents/organizations
  3. Case Study | Innovative planning and execution techniques
  4. Case Study | Project control and stakeholders’ involvement
  5. Case Study | From adversaries to integrated (project control) team

It is also worth noting that these case studies are available on our Project Management Knowledge Portal.

Most of the above case studies comes from capital projects.

To build on the above and other case studies, SUKAD has developed a 2-day workshop on Case Studies for Capital Projects. The various case studies that we will discuss in that workshop include failed and successful projects and address these projects from different perspectives. These projects also included cost plus and fixed price contracts.

Project Management Courses in Cyprus this SeptemberSUKAD is offering the above workshop and others in Cyprus the first week of September! I will be leading a couple of the workshops and my colleague Luc Bauwmans will lead the other two courses.

These workshops would be highly interactive and our principle consultants have direct personal experience in the various topics, which is gained through working on various global projects.
