Megaproject Management Research
Saïd Business School is the home of the world’s leading research programme on megaproject management. The research from the programme is the most cited in the world in Megaproject Management. It is widely used in both the academic and practitioner communities and in policy and public debate. It has been covered by The Financial Times, The Economist, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The BBC, and many other media.
The research was originally initiated by a grant from BT plc in 2007 to establish the BT Centre for Major Programme Management, and to found the BT Chair in Major Programme Management at Oxford in perpetuity. In 2014 Megaproject Management and the activities of the BT Centre were made a permanent part of Saïd Business School on a par with the other permanent subject areas within the Oxford Saïd.
Research projects are now funded from a broader group of organisations, with recent grants being received from the Economic and Social Research Council, and from the UK Department of Health.
