“Value Constructs and Unexpected Stakeholder Benefits in Megaprojects – a Qualitative Case Study of an Iconic Bridge”

Research Seminar by Dr. Pernille Eskerod

Wednesday, 26th April 2017
16:30 - 17:30
Rooms 4.06+4.07

It will be based on a case study I did with a visiting PhD student from Australia, Karyne Ang, who was with Webster two weeks in Summer 2016. It concerns the 50 years old bridge, Astoria Bridge, that connects the American states Oregon and Washington. I will focus on the multi-method data collection process. It was very interesting due to for example the fact that we interviewed persons that had been affected by the bridge 50 years, some in tandem-interviews, father and daughter, where the daughter as a child was moved to Oregon due to her father's job within construction of the bridge.
