Introducing the Issue on Megaprojects

"Symbolic and Sublime"

We complete our 2017 volume of Project Management Journal®; with a special issue on megaprojects—projects of enormous scope with associated increases in benefits, complexity, risks, and resources. Megaprojects tackle "powerful economic, social and symbolic roles in society" (Flyvbjerg, 2014). Success entails tangible and intangible benefits to large populations, providing widespread services, promoting advancements to achieving recognition, advancing public health, caring for the environment, and enhancing transportation and logistic infrastructures.
