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.

The Stacey matrix

A useful map for navigating your way into the concepts and field of complexity is "The Stacey Matrix". It can help to guide you by offering a method to select the appropriate management actions in a complex adaptive system based on the degree of certainty and level of agreement on the issue in question.

Le management par émergence:le plus souvent ce ne sont pas les dirigeants qui décident

Le management par émergence:le plus souvent ce ne sont pas les dirigeants qui décident | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

Décider, voilà bien la responsabilité d’un dirigeant… du moins, c’est ce qu’il croît.
Mais la plupart des décisions prises dans l’entreprise, le sont quotidiennement et sans lui… et heureusement !
