External Posting Description

Major capital projects bring scale, complexity, uncertainty of outcomes, and high stakes related to cost and schedule as well as other critical liabilities. There are often a plethora of governance challenges with the inherent competing interests of a host of key stakeholders including Board members, owners, contractors, architects, engineers, and construction staff. These engineering and construction projects typically also deal with highly complex technical issues as well as an ever-increasing amount of data and decision points critical to project success. Expert resources and management capability can be hard to find. However, failure is not an option as the projects are often essential for capitalizing on a market opportunity or sometimes the continued survival of the business.
