Mega-Project and major procurements are a constant challenge to most governments in Canada and around the world. How do you set up the competition? How do you manage and oversee the project? How do you keep it on time and on budget? How do you consult with and involve all the relevant stakeholders?

As part of the Pearson Centre’s #Econ4Tmro series the Panel Disucssion will begin with a presentation of a report by Prof. Tywoniak on a series of roundtables on complex project management with some 300 government and business leaders in Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US.

International Series:
The 2016 global Roundtable Series on Contracting for Complex Endeavours, jointly hosted by ICCPM (International Centre for Complex Project Management) and IACCM (International Association of Contract and Commercial Managers) aimed to collect the views of more than 300 global government and business leaders about how to enable improvements in delivery outcomes through better contracting.

Roundtables were held in Australia (Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney), Canada (Ottawa), UK (London), and USA (Washington, DC). In each city, the Roundtable was a one-day action research event, where 20-50 experts contributed. The Outcomes White Paper from the Roundtable Series (soon to be published) provides key lessons learned, case studies, and recommendations for government and industry.

We are inviting a cross-section of government, companies and industry associations, to allow for a fruitful discussion of the key issues.
Join us on May 18th as the Pearson Center provides to you key findings and information designed to help make the future management of mega projects and complex contracting better and more effective.
