Description

Project complexity is becoming increasingly challenging for project managers. Much research has been done on the concept of project complexity. The majority has focused on identifying the dimensions and drivers of the complexity; not enough research has been concentrated on finding guiding principles to support the practitioners of project management in their struggles to lead complex projects. This paper presents a design of an artifact with this purpose. The artifact is currently in a process of formative evaluation in an interactive DSR process. The preliminary evaluation indicates a high degree of relevance for practitioners in terms of sense-making, but there is a need for more development on the utilization part of the artifact.

In search of project leadership principles for navigating the complexity of IT projects

Project complexity is becoming increasingly challenging for project managers. Much research has been done on the concept of project complexity.
