Prof. Edward Ochieng

Edward is a Professor of Project Management. Possess extensive
experience and knowledge relating to organisational challenges and solution development for
managing large capital and heavy engineering projects. My research interest with people and
organisational challenges continues but has now been complemented by the need for wider
understanding of infrastructure systems, project productivity, project value creation, capital
effectiveness, project complexity and political economy and the management of projects. Edited 31
book chapters, published 4 books, 30 book chapters and over 90 refereed papers in high-ranking
journals and conferences. Collaborated with academics, industrialists, and the UK Infrastructure Project
Authority (IPA) to examine frameworks that could be used to identify and estimate benefits and value
(including capital effectiveness) at the front end of public sector projects. Secured an estimated
£834,000.00 from a range of funders for several projects and consultancy in project management.
Collaborated with academics and industrialists to investigate the promising innovative technology
cryogenic energy storage (CES) to solve the problem of how to store excess renewable energy – the
research team was awarded €7 million. Supervised 14 PhD students to successful completion and over
300 MSc/MBA industrial projects by research. Currently supervising 17 PhD students. Functioned as an
Internal and External Examiner of more than 20 PhD students in Middle East and different UK
universities. In recognition of my expertise and contribution to curriculum development, I have been
invited by Loughborough University, University of Wales, Open University and University College of
Estate Management to act as a programme reviewer. In addition, Edward has been invited by several
HEIs to provide specialist curriculum advice on the development of Project Management, Engineering
and Business Management programmes at validation events, including the University of Witwatersrand,
