Synopsis

Projects sometimes appear too complex to handle - trying to identify the multitude of variables to be managed, let alone anticipating how they might interact to create unexpected challenges, can be overwhelming. Leading a complex project requires a new way of thinking—a new approach to applying known project management techniques and tools, with a clear understanding of the variables involved, in order to move forward.  This course provides an innovative approach to assess project complexity in order to develop a plan that provides the right level of control and deploy the best techniques and flexibility for success.

Attendees will learn to use Strategy Execution’s unique Complexity Indicator and Complex Project Model to increase effectiveness in controlling the complexity in a project. The Complex Project Model provides valuable insight into the variables that create the complexity of a particular project. It enables delegates to select existing tools from a new point of view that both limits the level of complexity and leverages use of the remaining complexity for positive results.

The exercises and readings are designed to give a hands-on experience from a new perspective, while determining the true level of project complexity and using complexity to assist rather than hinder progress. This course is a must for the experienced project manager who needs to manage the seemingly unmanageable.

Reminder: It is highly recommended that participants already have practical project management experience and a thorough understanding of project management tools and techniques.
