Successful Project Management in the Oil & Gas Industry In addition to poor front end load and inefficient execution, the last member of the trinity of project failures in the oil and gas industry is poor project management. Other documented reasons amongst others for failure of megaprojects includes Nepotism, Lack of Passion, Poor Decision making and Risk taking. From a local perspective, businesses fail to take the hard and necessary decisions. They wait too long to make a decision and take risks and therefore miss valuable windows of opportunity to positively alter the potential outcome of their project. Additionally, there is the ubiquitous lack of competent project management personnel in key positions. Many years cognate experience does not necessarily equate to high project management competence. That is the reason this course is timely and necessary for broad cross sections of the oil and gas industry.
