Whether urban, technological, environmental, social, territorial, educative, touristic or mining, Large Projects produce, bring, accompany or suffer many changes. By uniting texts that juxtapose and intermingle Project Management, Politic sciences, management, urbanism, communication, tourism, information technology, Earth sciences, knowledge management and Engineering, this piece of work propose an overview of those changes.

Researchers and practitioners, all passionate about challenges of changes that represent the new era of the Economy of ideas, that already come, so fast, to replace that of the Economy of knowledge, made the choice to investigate, analyze and explain in what Large Projects are synonymous of changes, how big environmental, technologic and social changes hit Large Project or what practices of Project Management have changed the field.

The first part of the book tackles environment changes and their implications on Large Projects; the second part deals with changes in practices and professions of Large Project; the third part concerns changes on theoretical or intuitive perspectives; the fourth part illustrates unexpected or untameable complexities represented by changes in Large Projects. The collection of textes invite the imagining of the being-together and the living-together of tomorrow whether we are here or there, political leader or student, urban or rural, manager or consultant.
