Decision Making in Major Projects – QUBE@Work


In many ways any major project is essentially a series of decisions; yet, apart from the original ‘go or no go’ it’s very easy to take the decision making process for granted.

Decision Making is the second of a new Series of bi-monthly facilitated evening workshops (on the virtual, collaborative platform called QUBE) for the major projects community. Using ‘ISWON’, one of the tools on QUBE, we’ll facilitate a series of Peer Assist sessions around challenging decisions to help you map your options and their consequences.

The sessions are designed to encourage you to take away some insight you can use – a technique, an example, a sense of how others do things or simply a confirmation of your own intuitive approach. The sessions will also help you build and extend your professional network as well as develop your skills on collaborating and co-working in a virtual environment.


QUBE @ Work is open to members of the Major Projects Knowledge Hub, Major Projects Association and anyone in the wider community of project delivery professionals.


Comments from delegates on the first QUBE@Work Session on Stakeholder Storytelling, which took place in February 2019:

“I really enjoyed using QUBE for the first time. My head is buzzing with ideas.”

“You’re working with people you wouldn’t normally work with and you’re getting some work done in the space”

“I’ve not experienced anything like it. Thank you!”


You’ll need a laptop and a PC, with a set of in-ear headphones and microphone (as you would use for your telephone). Once you have downloaded QUBE we’ll guide you through the process of learning to work through an avatar (your QUBOT) and you’ll be ready to go.

During QUBE@WORK we are filming some of the event and may use images and film footage for marketing material and publicity purposes online, as well as for internet promotions on the QUBE website ( and social media sharing sites. If you wish to opt-out from any of the above, please let me know in advance or speak to a member of the Pentacle team on the day.

Join us on QUBE for decision making in major projects on Thursday 11th April!

Further events in the Series

Whilst the precise theme may be subject to change, the dates are now set, so add them to your diary and we’ll keep you posted as each workshop is given a title. Once you are registered on QUBE, there’s no need to re-register, you will be able to go straight into the workshop Qubicle and you meet up with other workshop delegates to pick up on conversations or work you have started, at any time, in between the workshops.

What can you expect from QUBE @ Work?

These regular workshop sessions will provide you with an opportunity to explore and develop personal and organizational approaches to working in major projects. We aim to generate an output from each event that you can take back and share with colleagues. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience (and practise your skills) of working in a virtual environment. Finally, this is an opportunity to meet and work collaboratively with your peers from across other major projects.

Questions or suggestions to Jonathan Norman, Manager, Major Projects Knowledge Hub.
