Risk Identification in Megaprojects as a Crucial Phase of Risk Management
A Literature Review
The purpose of this study is to perform a literature review of risk management in megaprojects and systematize the risks studied in the literature. A systematic search of the main databases has been performed. The contributions include: (1) a bibliometric analysis of articles; (2) the systematization and classification into nine categories of the risks found in a content analysis of the articles; and (3) the identification of possible areas of interest for research and practice. Risks are comprehensively categorized to assist practitioners during the identification phase, while potential areas for future lines of research are presented for academics.
