18 September 2020
The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management's Dr Juliano Denicol has launched the IPMA Megaprojects Book Club, a global platform of events with leading megaproject authors.
The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management's Dr Juliano Denicol has launched the IPMA Megaprojects Book Club, a global platform of events with leading megaproject authors. The IPMA Megaprojects Book Club will discuss the key concepts, practices and ideas proposed by globally recognised authors. The core objective is to expose the audience to cutting-edge thinking and create a conversation, a constructive dialogue to reveal reflective critiques after reading the book.
The influential authors that are shaping our thinking will be invited to present their book, highlighting the specific contributions that moved the field forward. The books that are leading the global agenda on megaprojects explore several lenses to offer rich theoretical and practical insights to the audience. They often emphasise case-studies from a variety of sectors, building robust arguments and frameworks to understand the world of megaprojects.
The forum convenes some of the most inquisitive minds writing about megaprojects, who will share insights based on several years of research and professional experiences. They are naturally passionate about the subject, and equally very interested in different perspectives that might challenge current assumptions and push the boundaries of our knowledge.
