Project 13: from Transactions to Enterprises
A new approach to large project management could help address the UK's productivity gap

The UK’s productivity is poor compared to other G7 countries – 35% behind Germany and 18% behind the G7 average.

From Transactions to Enterprises outlines a new approach to large project management. It moves it from a purely transactional to community model, which will help to tackle the UK’s productivity problems and deliver major benefits to the public.

By establishing communities of owners and suppliers Project 13 has the potential to deliver a step change in the way projects are managed so that the focus is on long-term value not simply lowest cost.

The Infrastructure Client Group, chaired by Andrew Mitchell, CEO of Tideway, has created five working groups to assess and develop how this new approach can be rolled out. Each group represents a critical feature for delivering the right infrastructure.

These groups cover:

  1. Governance
  2. Organisation
  3. Integration
  4. Capable owner
  5. Digital transformation
