Project Controls Expo 2017

Project Controls Expo 2017

This event has the clear objective of providing significant practical and theoretical awareness on Project Controls process, tools and techniques to its stakeholders. Held annually at the impressive Emirates Arsenal Stadium in London. We are expecting up to 1,000 delegates to attend.

This event is building up well. We are delighted to announce our new Megaprojects Zone for 2017 with a list of top speakers from organisations such as Ministry of Defence, IPA(Infrastructure and Project Authority), Crossrail, Thames Tideway, to name a few. View the All day Agenda here.

Send a Q to Speaker/SME

This newly launched feature delivers a delegate the benefit of asking a question to our Speakers/SMEs (Subject Matter Experts). A delegate can now complete the given form at Send-a-q-to-speaker and submit a question, to a particular Speaker/SME in advance. The question might also relate to the speaker's presentation, which is uploaded to our App, a day before the event day. The questions received from delegates/attendees will be handed over to the speaker after the presentation is over and the speaker will attempt to reply to the delegates' queries.

*Please Note - All Q's to be sent to Expo team at least 1 week prior to event. Any Q's received post this deadline will not be accepted.

This white paper explores the Sunk Cost Fallacy and how it not only applies to projects but also to project management investments. Do we ignore a better situation simply because we fear wasting the time or money we have already spent? Do we sink more cost into a failing project because otherwise, it would mean admitting failure? Some companies have made significant investments into their project controls processes and tools only to realize that they are at a crossroads. While it may be tempting to include sunk costs in the decision-making process, it is important to recognize the associated repercussions.
