Session 2: Collaborative Contracts, Project Governance and Set-Up - 2022 International Symposium

2022 International Symposium - Project Leadership in a Changing World

Session 2: Collaborative Contracts, Project Governance and Set-Up

Whilst capital-intensive, project-based sectors have made remarkable progress towards the use of collaborative supplier contracts, the governance of relationships with local communities, local authorities, interest groups, activists and other non-user groups has received much less attention. And yet, as pressure mounts for major projects to produce socially valuable outcomes, good management of these so-called nonmarket stakeholder relationships is critical if projects are to meet traditional performance expectations.

Framing Questions:
- What is the value of investing in community benefit agreements?
- Where to draw the line when dealing with activist groups?
- What criteria are available to determine the legitimacy of nonmarket stakeholder claims?
- What conflict-resolution structures are available in the context?

- Professor Nuno Gil, University of Sydney/Alliance Manchester Business School
