In this exclusive podcast for Oil and Gas IQ, Tim Haðdar speaks with Giorgio Locatelli, Member of EU Megaproject Initiative and Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln. In the course of his interview, Giorgio divulges some of thefindings of his research, including the startlingfact that we may, as a species, be the fundamental reason why four out of five megaprojects come in late and over budget!

Prior to this he was a Research Fellow in Politecnico di Milano (Italy). He has more than 60 international peer-reviewed publications.
