Operationalizing coordination of mega-projects - a workpractice perspective
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of IRNOP VII Project Research Conference, BEIJING: PUBLISHING HOUSE ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY , 2006, 574-587 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we propose a workpractice approach towards operationalizing the coordination of mega-projects. The approach matured over several years in development practice at Ericsson, a major supplier of telecommunication products and services worldwide. Key points in the approach are the management of critical dependencies and the construction of a communal understanding on how to coordinate projects. Coordination is seen as a workpractice, where actors provide coordination services to the project. We discuss some results from the application of the approach in relation to an ideal-type classification of mega-projects such as Weber, Rambo and Gaia. The main conclusion is that the suggested approach enables the coordination of extraordinarily complex megaprojects.
