Sydney Metro wears its innovations and achievements with pride: Australia’s biggest public transport infrastructure project; fully automated driverless trains; fully accessible stations; network-wide, continuous mobile-phone coverage; no timetable – just turn up and go.

Received wisdom for such huge infrastructure projects is that scope and requirements are locked down before you start and everything is planned to reduce change to a minimum. But Jon Lamonte, Chief Executive, gives us a very different perspective.

Drawing on his most recent experience in Sydney, as well as his time as CEO of Transport for Greater Manchester and before that, CEO of Tube Lines over the time of the 2012 Olympics, Jon tells the story of infrastructure projects as emerging and evolving entities and shares his experience and lessons on how to be flexible and adaptable in your management of these giant programmes
