Description:Developing Government Policy Capability examines the role project management plays in supporting how policy work is conducted. Using Australia’s controversial Tobacco Plain Packaging Bill 2011 as a case study, the authors explore the question: Can project management practices contribute to improving government policy development and implementation capability? Their argument—that project management can solve even “wicked” problems—is not necessarily new. As they explain, that’s pretty much what project management is all about.

Description:
Many government projects and programs are prolonged for years, failing to meet the projects’ objectives, wasting taxpayers’ money, or they are abruptly terminated in the midst of planning or implementation.

Government funded projects and programs set out to achieve national growth and enhance the lives of citizens. They are ubiquitous—and notoriously unwieldy.

Drawing on an impressive array of large-scale government projects gleaned from government audit reports across three major sectors—infrastructure and transportation, information systems, and defense—this study explains why government projects go wrong and what can be done to improve their success rates.

Author:Guilherme Biesek, Nuno Gil, PhD
Description:How do project teams overcome differences to adopt a design plan that strikes a balance between short-term affordability and long-term adaptability? In the book, Building Options at Project Front-End Strategizing: The Power of Capital Design for Evolvability, Guilherme Biesek and Nuno Gil cite research indicating the need for a formal framework to develop front-end strategies that ensure cost-effective management of the project through future change.

Biesek and Gil found limitations in the current practices and theory for management of capital projects, and turned to real options reasoning and design literature. Project teams often resort to real options reasoning, because investment in design flexibility is similar to buying options.
If future changes are minimal or favorable the options can be exercised to adapt the design economically. In the event the future is not favorable to the project, a limited investment has been lost.
