Megaprojects are an increasing species of projects, often used to transform the face of suburbs, cities or entire regions. One challenge of megaproject is the high number of stakeholders that have different – often conflicting – agendas and objectives, something which amplifies the inherent technical complexity of such large undertakings. Project governance is a concept that helps to align different objectives and is thus an important factor to delivering megaproject successfully. This paper introduces a pragmatic model of governance in megaprojects, which is based on democratic principles that promotes collaboration of all stakeholders to develop working, context-dependent practices to manage megaprojects successfully.
