Abstract [en]

In this paper we propose a workpractice approach towards operationalizing the coordination of mega-projects.  The approach matured over several years in development practice at Ericsson, a major supplier of telecommunication products and services worldwide.  Key points in the approach are the management of critical dependencies and the construction of a communal understanding on how to coordinate projects.  Coordination is seen as a workpractice, where actors provide coordination services to the project.  We discuss some results from the application of the approach in relation to an ideal-type classification of mega-projects such as Weber, Rambo and Gaia.  The main conclusion is that the suggested approach enables the coordination of extraordinarily complex mega-projects.
