COMPLEX PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Overview
Today’s business thrives on uncertainty and dealing with complex problems becomes a norm rather than an exception. With increasing uncertainty and volatility in the business environment, managing projects becomes increasingly complex. Such projects require development of new technical requirements to keep abreast with rapidly changing expectations of stakeholders. Under these circumstances, the overall project objectives become becoming increasingly difficult to achieve.

To manage complex projects, project managers have to  integrate varied knowledge based competencies and customize changes required quickly and effectively to successfully complete projects. They need cognitive and contextual integration expertise, which means ability to manage knowledge to adapt appropriately to changes being encountered.



 

Terminal Objective

To manage projects that have a high degree of technical and stakeholder requirement complexity and volatility in order to successfully deliver high value projects within the specified constraints and limitations in place.

FAQ & FURTHER INFORMATION

Proposed Overall Learning Framework

The 70:20:10 Model for Learning and Development has been found to be most effective within the training profession to describe the optimal sources of learning aimed at developing work based competencies. It holds that individuals obtain 70 percent of their knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal educational events.

Based on this model, we propose that the Fundamentals of Project Management course be structured along similar lines. It is proposed that it is undertaken in stages. These stages will include awareness stage, appreciation stage and application stage.
