The John Grill Institute for Project Leadership is a global leader in rigorous research that rethinks the many ways we conceive, lead, and benefit from projects.
It is focused on changing the project ecology by transcending industry boundaries as well as both opening avenues for communication and creating opportunities to learn from each other.
Furthermore, it also serves as a safe space for industry and government to come together and address the issues that stop our partners from gaining the full value from the projects they invest in – issues that are often difficult to discuss without a trusted forum.
In a rapidly changing and uncertain world, projects are becoming the way that work is done.
However, the rate of underperformance of projects is uncomfortably high, as is the flow-on effect of wasted time, money, and social capital invested.
Our diverse field of research aims to explore the reasons behind these phenomena, many of which can largely be attributed to increasing project complexity, and a limited human capacity to make decisions under uncertainty.
