Leading Complex Programs and Mega Projects

This course will allow organizations to establish the required processes and governance to lead and implement complex programs and megaprojects in an increasingly volatile and unpredictable environment.

Leading Complex Programs and Mega Projects is a course designed to equip senior leaders and program/project managers with the skills and knowledge required to lead large and complex programs and mega projects.

In today's volatile and unpredictable environment, organizations face significant challenges in establishing the proper governance structure, engaging multiple stakeholders with different and often conflicting agendas, establishing front-ended loading right, and, at the same time, managing global supply chain risks, assembling and managing a high performing team and all compliance aspects of a challenging regulatory system.

These challenges require a different approach. Otherwise, these mega projects can be critical destroyers of capital and value.
