Who We Are

The Major Projects Association is a community of practice for organisations engaged in the initiation and delivery of major projects, programmes and portfolios. 

The Association is home to those organisations and individuals that share a common purpose: the desire to hone their skills; to improve best practice; and to investigate innovative solutions for the many problems encountered during major projects, programmes and portfolios. 

Membership comprises organisations engaged in a wide variety of commercial and public enterprises. They operate in a wide variety of fields including: manufacturing, construction, defence, transportation, IT, government departments, consultancies and law, as well as those engaged in the academic study of major projects. 


“Major projects are so complex that they require cross-disciplinary collaboration of the highest order – within and between companies and cultures – before they can be implemented successfully.”
