Ides De Vos's curator insight, April 7, 2013 9:03 AM

It is indeed needed to know and acknowledge the difference , because many mistakes are made to use tools like Lean 6sigma,balancedscorecard, for complex problems , while they should use for complicated.

The big difference is order and unorder, predictibility and risk.

Managing complexity: a practical example

In Switzerland, there are more than 4'000 contaminated sites needing remediation in the next decades. Some of the remediation projects are especially large – over 100 Millions € - and highly complex. On behalf of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), the authors developed a guideline (in press) to support the authorities which are challenged by such complex projects.
After having identified the success factors and key challenges of three sites being currently remediated, a project typology, based on four dimensions (technical, legal, socio-relational and management), has been developed. Further, a complexity grid, inspired by the project complexity model of Kathleen Hass, has been developed, allowing a qualitative identification of the main sources of complexity. Finally, success factors, recommendations and tools for key elements like goal-setting, decision-making and steering, stakeholder-management, project-organisation, participation and communication, planning, uncertainty and risk-management, culture and leadership, are suggested.

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012 | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

I found a great TOP 10 article that hits on us Agile PM’s as well as other PM trends foreseen for 2012 on ESI International’s PMO Blog. I am seeing all of this happen at my F100 clients, some moreso than others. The “Mixing of Agile with Traditional methods” is very very big in their quest to deliver value – especially for projects outside the software development area. Enjoy !

100 NASA Tips for PMs – Not Rocket Science

These have been floating around the net for quite a few years and I happened to stumble across them again and thought I should share them with you. All credit goes to Jerry Madden at NASA for this compilation of common sense tips for project managers.

The list might come from NASA but none of it is rocket science.

Mechanistisches vs. ganzheitliches Denken und Handeln

Mechanistisches vs. ganzheitliches Denken und Handeln | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Kürzlich habe ich einen interessanten Vortrag des renommierten Österreichischen Physikers, Prof. Dr. Herbert Pietschmann, als Podcast gehört. Titel des Vortrags war “Die Atomisierung der Gesellschaft”. Darin geht Pietschmann einerseits auf die zunehmende Individualisierung in unserer Gesellschaft ein. In diesem Zuge beleuchtet er aber auch den Denkrahmen, auf welchem das weit verbreitete mechanistische Denken in der westlichen Welt begründet ist.

Panarchy: Analyzing Complexity In Projects

Panarchy: Analyzing Complexity In Projects | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Reality is difficult to analyze. Project Managers still have to eliminate root-causes to major problems though. How to analyze today’s complexity? I found something worthwhile exploring: Panarchy. Its origin is in ecosystem management, where it is used for assessment on how ecosystems, social systems and economic systems are interacting. How complex do you want to go?
