The Supply Of Project Information To External Stakeholders


  • WAGENER, Gina


This paper is about the supply of information to stakeholders of mega projects. In Germany there are several mega projects in progress today that should have been finished long ago. The projects are special because of two aspects. Firstly, they all had to face much higher costs than expected and a longer construction process than estimated at the beginning. Secondly, all the projects failed to inform their stakeholders, especially the public. Although there are multiple reasons behind the projects delayed development, this paper shall focus upon the information flow. Why do people refuse to give information to their stakeholders and which consequences could have been avoided? At the end there will be some recommendations for better usage of information that can lead to project success.
