The largest, most complex engineering and construction programs have a lot to teach smaller programs about effective Program Management. Robert Prieto’s new book, The Giga Factor: Program Management in the Engineering & Construction Industry collects and analyzes these lessons for their broadest possible application.
“By looking at the largest of the engineering and construction programs in the industry, so called “Giga Programs” , we are able to see details that are masked or lost in the noise of mega-programs and smaller projects,” Prieto says. “While these lessons are focused on these Giga Programs, having discovered them, many will be applicable on smaller-scale mega programs.”
The book’s exploration of Program Management includes chapters devoted to:
• Program Initiation
• Program Governance
• Program Execution
• Program Management Oversight
• Risks and Opportunities
• Sustainability and... More > Innovation
• Special Applications
• Case History and Lessons Learned< Less
