A Reflection of the State-of-the-Art in Megaproject Research
The Oxford Handbook of Megaproject Management
The Oxford Handbook of Megaproject Management edited by Bent Flyvbjerg is an important and certainly timely book. The interest in megaproject management has probably never been greater. This is equally true for research on megaprojects and megaproject management. The general impression is that more and more people are entering the field of megaproject management, more scholars are attending a growing number of conferences, and workshops are being organized to drive research and scholar-practitioner interactions. The Project Management Institute is initiating research-related activities targeting the management of megaprojects. MIT Sloan Management Review recently published a paper on innovation in megaprojects that, to a great extent, demonstrates the interest from general management, top managers, and key decision makers in the challenges associated with megaprojects (Davies et al., 2017).
