MANAGEMENT OF MEGA & COMPLEX PROJECT

Imagine you are the Chief Executive of BP (British Petroleum), considering whether to invest money in the newly emerging oil-producing area of Turkmenistan. What does your company want (and want to avoid) from its investment? Choice of Mega Projects under consideration within this investment could be exploration and production, pipelines (oil and gas) construction, distribution lines, buffer/storage tanks onshore, advanced robotics/analytics/automation/artificial intelligence, local content capacity development, supply chain capacity, refinery capability, process plants or any other suitable mega projects within the oil-producing area of Turkmenistan that BP could consider.

First Step: You would need to clearly identify which specific type of Mega and Complex Project investment that you think critically and essential for BP to invest in Turkmenistan

Second Step: You then critically reflect on the following mega and complex project elements below – Select ANY 5 MEGA AND COMPLEX PROJECT PRINCIPLES FROM THE LIST BELOW. You can also include other elements from your own background research about this Mega and Complex Project:

vProject Management and Programme Management in Mega and Complex Projects/Programmes

vLevel of Complexities around this Mega Project

vGaps Analysis – Potential Issues, Problems and Challenges

vProject Management opportunities in this Mega Project

vProgramme Management opportunities in this Mega Project

vComplex Business, Organisational and Commercial Environment

vMacro, Meso & Micro in-depth appraisal & evaluation

vOrganisational Complexities

vStructural Complexities

vInstitutional Level Relationship Complexities

vCommercial (Financial and Contractual) Complexities

vLegalities Complexities

vPutting it together

vProject Management & Programme Management effective execution Complexities

vMultiple Stakeholders priorities and complexities – dealing with Government and Private Entities

vStakeholders Management Problems, Challenges and Issues in this Mega Project

vNOC (National Oil Company) vs IOC (International Oil Company) vs Service Companies (Private) Joint Venture challenges, with JV or No JV

vPriorities assessment when dealing with different level of complexities

vPriorities level vs Complexities level, High Priority High Complexity, Low Priority Low Complexity, middle ground, etc.

vOptimum Bias

vCulture of over-commit, over-promise, over priced & under-deliver – why this continues to be a persistent problem/potential problem in this Mega Project

vOver/Under Estimate, Over/Under Bid, etc.

vNOC potentially short-changed by private entities or IOC, how to address and mitigate this? Major Countries, EU, Trade Blocs influence or any other potential socio-political factors? Any other potential Customers/Buyers?

vProcurement method (procurement frauds?)

vStrategic Misrepresentation of the inherent benefit and value of this Mega Project

vMiscalculated risk and value of the Mega Project

vUnclear/Vague/Over-Stated benefit and value of the Mega Project

vFurther Gaps Analysis

vEffective benefit and value transition to the relevant stakeholders of this Mega Project

vComplexities in Phase by Phase Management – Whole Life Cycle Approach

vProgramme Management Life Cycle for the Mega Project

vPhase by phase, Stage by Stage, Activities by Activities Identification

vYou could populate this content using visuals of the Project Life Cycle & Programme Life Cycle up to the benefit and value realisation

vSupply Chain Management (Strategic Procurement and Strategic Purchasing)

vSketch the Supply Chain Diagram for this Mega Project

vIdentify whom are the potential upstream, mid-stream and downstream stakeholders and partners

vIdentify and critically appraise/evaluate whom are the routine, leverage, bottle-neck and strategic service providers (service providers refer to any government or private entities such as suppliers, contractors, sub-contractors, bottleneck and routine)

vStrategic Risk Management

vIdentify & Critically reflect on potential Strategic Risk of this Mega Project

vE.g., Wide range EU break-up, Brexit, Covid 19 (During and Post) Not possible to secure long term purchase agreement, human rights records, potential oil and gas pipeline theft/leakages, local content challenges, local community potentially disadvantaged through this Project, geo-political climate, cross-border, high CAPEX & OPEX, local content inclusivity, unsustainable production and refinery cost, continuing low oil and gas price, not recoverable, challenging oil and gas frontiers, engineering and technical complexities and challenges, technical and commercial capability and the ability to coordinate and stream line the work flows

vGovernance

vTransparency & Accountability

vLack of control mechanism

vEffective control and monitoring systems

vProcurement, Contracts Management, Contracts Administration

vProcurement Biasness and Fraud

vComplicated Bidding Schedule to Project Delivery

vChallenged and uncoordinated Contract Centres and Cost Centres

vProcurement’s real Value for Monies

vGaps between CAPEX and OPEX Purchasing (Strategic vs Operational)

vCentralised vs decentralised Procurement

vCost/Time Control Practices

vCost and time efficient mechanisms

vCapital Control and Capital Efficiency opportunities in this Mega Project

vChange Management

vHow change management would be effectively managed in this Mega Project?

vLessons Learnt and Lessons yet to be Learnt – what will go wrong and right in this Mega Project, experience and usability from other similar mega and complex project e.g., TSGP as discussed during our lectures and seminars applying any of these Mega and Complex Project principles

vGaps Analysis – Missing Links

vBenefits and Value Management (VfM – Value for Monies) – Effective Control, Monitoring, Transition & Measurement, how to deliver value from the proposed Mega and Complex Project

vSustainability – Deliver more with Less, Value for Monies, Sustainable PM & PgM for this Mega and Complex Project

vProject and Programme Management Methodology and Methods – Any strategic and new way of managing the proposed Mega and Complex Project
