ASPECTS OF COMPLEXITY: MANAGING PROJECTS IN A COMPLEX WORLD
Complexity in projects may be one of those things that are difficult to define, but easy to recognize when encountered. Aspects of Complexity stems from a series of four academic-business roundtables sponsored by PMI in the United States, Australia, Malta and Brazil. It presents a collection of analyses that addresses complexity in both an academic and a practical way.

Aspects of Complexity offers deeper, more detailed investigation and analysis of the principal aspects of project complexity, including:
  • Strategic management,
  • The reluctance to take on project management, or “fear of flying,”
  • The impact of complexity on cost and schedule estimates,
  • Managing projects with high complexity,
  • Tools for complex projects, and
  • Developing managerial competence for complex projects.

This hybrid text is unique. It is academically rigorous and practically sound. Those who study and research the theory of project management, as well as those who manage projects and deliver results will find something of value.

Now through 31 July, purchase this title at the PMI Marketplace for a PMI member price of US$19.15 (regularly priced at US$23.95).
