The statistics we gathered make for both sobering reading, and form the epitaph for the Age of the Megaproject, including:
- Which commonalities exist in your most successful large capital projects
- The key weaknesses identified in your least successful large capital projects
- The top three critical applications that you think make large capital projects
- The top three reasons for budget overruns
