Why you should read Industrial Megaprojects

Few industrial corporations would consider a success rate of 25% to 35% acceptable, yet this is the average for megaprojects worth $1 billion or more. Edward W. Merrow, an expert on staggeringly big projects, details why many such endeavors fail and what owners can do to ensure that their megaprojects meet their business objectives. Merrow’s book could have been quite dry, considering the subject matter, but it proves to be engaging and revealing instead. getAbstract recommends this informative, interesting read to project directors, sponsors, investors, board members and senior executives at industrial corporations.
