      • An insightful view on how to use the power of complexity theory to manage projects more successfully

        Current management practices require adherence to rigid, global responses unsuitable for addressing the changing needs of most projects. Complexity Theory and Project Management shifts this paradigm to create opportunities for expanding the decision-making process in ways that promote flexibility and increase effectiveness. It informs readers on the managerial challenges of juggling project requirements, and offers them a clear roadmap on how to revise perspectives and reassess priorities to excel despite having an unpredictable workflow.

        Complexity Theory and Project Management provides remedies through the use of teaching notes, power point slides, a solutions manual, and a toolbox of answers to common project management problems to illustrate how the deployment of complexity theory can make a project more successful. One of the first books covering the subject of complexity theory for project management, this useful guide:

        • Explains the relationship of complexity theory to virtual project management
        • Supplies techniques, tips, and suggestions for building effective and successful teams in the virtual environment
        • Presents current information about best practices and relevant proactive tools
        • Makes a strong case for including complexity theory in PMI’s PMBOK Guide

        Complexity Theory and Project Management gives a firsthand view on the future of complexity theory as a driving force in the management field, and allows project managers to get a head start in applying its principles immediately to produce more favorable outcomes.
