Professor Ika can speak to specifics about the challenges facing the COVID-19 vaccine rollout - a “gamechanger” for project delivery.

“Some observers – though not wanting to appear pessimistic – have raised the alarm and said that while the “battle” to produce the vaccine has been won (…) the campaign of mass vaccination, akin to the “war”, is still to be fought. Achieving the ambitious project of vaccinating the masses is an enormous challenge (…) specifically from a project delivery standpoint.” (extract from the article Vaccinations de masse in Gestion hospitalières)
