Infrastructure governance

Webinars - Effective Delivery of Games-Related Infrastructure and Services


25 & 27 October 2022

The webinars provided an opportunity for more than 250 participants from the worlds of sports and policy makers in infrastructure and public procurement to consider cross-cutting challenges to the delivery of Games-related infrastructure and associated services. Panellists discussed institutional design, pro-active stakeholder engagement, leaving a positive legacy after the Games – social, environmental, and developmental – and managing and delivering complex projects. They shared concrete experiences on the strategic choices that need to be taken for designing agile organisations, how to make sustainability a lasting reality and how to bring the multiple pieces of a complex delivery programme come together. From managing a variety of stakeholders to embedding sustainability objectives in project delivery, these challenges require tailored risk management strategies that take into account strategic objectives, financial resources, existing assets, and overall context and capacity.

The webinars will contribute to the development of the final output of the project: Guidelines on the delivery of Games infrastructure and associated services, which are intended to support knowledge management and sharing across Organising Committees and will also be a resource for any organisation looking to maximise the value of infrastructure investments and services. The Guidelines will be finalised in the first half of 2023.

 2022 IOC webinar card

The agenda is organised around the main 4 clusters related to the identified risks under the ‌IOC-OECD project, namely: 

  1. Institutional set-up and organisational management
  2. Stakeholder participation
  3. Sustainability and legacy
  4. Programme management

Considering the online nature of the webinars, these 4 building blocks were covered during two days in two-hour webinars.


AGENDA (for both webinars)


The first day (25 October), the webinar tackled challenges and potential solutions to set up an effective organisation able to deliver on its mandate and how this needs to be complemented by proactive stakeholder engagement.

  The second day (27 October), the discussions looked at how sustainability and legacy strategies could be mainstreamed in the delivery of the Games and how agile programme management could help overcoming risks associated with the integrated nature of the Games.
