Maximizing Returns on Large Investment Projects

Large projects have always suffered from cost overruns and delays. Here's how to boost their returns.

At any given moment, more than 200 large public and private capital investment projects, each worth at least $500 million, are in progress globally. Thousands more valued at $100 million are under way.

These gargantuan numbers are bound to become even bigger. An estimated $53 trillion needs to be invested in public infrastructure by 2030 to keep the global economy on a firm path to recovery, according to a recent study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development supported by Oliver Wyman’s Global Risk Center.
