Abstract

This chapter is excerpted from 'Capital Project Management, Volume I'. The volumes in this series individually and altogether may be likened to a complete case study of Tesla through the end of 2018. Memorable training and educational learning points are italicized. Many popular media articles are excerpted, abridged to illustrate points of theoretical emphasis. This keeps the story alive, meaningful, and urgent. Strategic management is a rigorous corpus of scholarship in the Academy of Management, as is technology and innovation management. Project management is found within production or operations management, but is more generally led by the Project Management Institute, a professional trade organization. The volumes in this series intersect conceptually where these fields meet, and in actual practice, where capital projects are planned, budgeted, and financed. This volume (Volume I) tells the Tesla story and then presents chapters that address, in order: corporate governance and project stakeholder or communication management, project portfolios as strategic corporate portfolios, and an executive-level review of the best-practice project management paradigm, as applied to capital projects. The epilogue takes the story through the end of the first quarter of 2019 and offers commentary with respect to the points made earlier.
