Case Study Overview:In conventional business and government megaprojects–such as hydroelectric dams, chemical-processing plants, or big-bang enterprise-resource-planning systems–the standard approach is to build something monolithic and customized. Such projects must be 100% complete before they can deliver benefits: Even when it's 95% complete, a nuclear reactor is of no use. On the basis of 30 years of research and consulting on megaprojects, the author has found two factors that play a critical role in determining success or failure: replicable modularity in design and speed in iteration. The article examines those factors by looking at well-known megaprojects, both successful ones, and cautionary tales.Case Study Link
Using the megaproject case study answer the following:Build and describe a complex model that can be used to manage the mega project described in the case study linked above. Your model should include the following:
- Overview of the process
- Pictorial design of the process
- Description of each phase
- Explanation as to why this process will work when managing mega projects.
