It’s the stupid people – oops, the people, stupid


Op donderdag 27 augustus a.s. verzorgen Richard Pharro en Stephan Brendel van APMG een online kennissessie (Engelstalig).

We have always been busy exchanging ideas about the future of project management. But has it really gone better?
Aren’t we rather hiding behind standards and missing important elements that had been crucial to success in the past?
Why has the London Crystal Palace been built in time and budget? Why did Berlin fail with their recent airport, but built one of the largest in the 1920s? Why did Rotterdam succeed with Maasvlakte 2? What is it that made the difference from engineering during the Roman Empire until today?

We will have a conversation about the top factors that influence challenged and failed projects and those that made projects successful. Using examples from history and today there is something for all of us to learn from.
