A Complex Systems approach to Complex Project Risk Management

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Posterpeer-review


This research project is targeted to explore symptoms, as expressed by the community, in the area of managing complex projects. Currently, there is a significant weakness in traditional methods (ex. PERT, CPM) to adequately support project managers in terms of systemic failures as they emerge from non-trivial micro interactions. The envisioned output of this project is to promote understanding in terms of the dynamic nature and inter-connectivity of the underlying risks in order to support better project definition, planning and execution as guides from principles and tools that lie within the complex network regime. The purpose of this poster is to introduce key aspects currently in pursuit, along with preliminary result derived from analysis of real life data in the context of a construction project.
