Graham Dalton, Chief Executive, Highways Agency on why they are members of MPA
"The Highways Agency is a major client for infrastructure investment in England, and probably the largest single public sector client for the wider construction industry. The Major Projects Association offers our staff the opportunity to meet and compare experiences with other major project organisations - clients, consultants, contractors - working in other industry sectors. We appreciate hearing of different approaches to common project problems, and we benefit from being part of a wider network of project professionals. At a practical level, the MPA's seminars provide unique learning and development opportunities for our project staff - seminars that are not part of a sales pitch, and where the lessons from mistakes are shared as willingly as the lessons from successes. Used wisely, MPA membership represents good value for money for training and development of project management staff, and a network of experienced project people that can lead to innovation and improved project performance."
