The UK needs to make a series of major strategic infrastructure decisions over the next few years, including airport capacity, climate change and energy security. Well-judged projects contribute to a successful economy – bad decisions can result in expensive mistakes.
Recent ‘megaprojects’ including High Speed 2, Hinkley Point C and the third runway at Heathrow have attracted both support and scepticism.
This event discusses whether big really is best or if smaller projects provide better value for money.
Our panel included:
- Bridget Rosewell OBE, Commissioner at the National Infrastructure Commission
- Isabel Dedring, Global Transport Leader at Arup and former Deputy Mayor for Transport in London
- Dr Ed Hoffman, Strategic Adviser at PMI and former Chief Knowledge Officer at NASA.
This event was chaired by Julian McCrae, Deputy Director of the Institute for Government
We would like to thank the Project Management Institute for supporting this event.
