Tried & tested vs innovation in major projects

Half Day Seminar

Church House, Conference Centre Westminster, Deans Yard, London, SW1P 3NZ

The question for major projects: β€œto innovate, or not to innovate?” has long been contested. Many major projects that incorporated innovative approaches to technology have become case studies of (so-called) project failure. Many have been hugely successful in bringing new solutions to the challenges of the modern world. What differentiates effective and ineffective innovation in projects?

This event will explore the range of options available to project owners to innovate, and, by extension, design, engineering, and execution firms. How can we assess how much, if any, innovation to attempt in projects? What is the impact of the contextual reality in which projects are conceived and delivered on the amount and type of innovation utilised? How can we assess the capabilities of the supply-side capacity and capability to innovate? What in fact do we mean by innovation, and do we all understand it the same way?

We will hear speakers from across the spectrum of projects that include – in some sectors depend on – innovative approaches. There will be interactive work included in the seminar, to give participants time to reflect on, and share with peers, innovative ideas on project innovation.
