Megaprojects and risk
There’s lots of big projects on the go at the moment, and experience suggests that some will go badly wrong. The man who wrote the book on this (literally) is Bent Flyvbjerg of Aarlborg University in Denmark. He’ll be appearing at a symposium organised by Griffith’s Urban Research Program at 80 George St, Brisbane (wasn’t there a blog with a name like that?) on Friday 1 December. I’ll be the local support act.
Over the fold is the promotional poster. Here’s a review by Darryl Jarvis. I also wrote one which I will try to post later.
