Business today is often complex and moves so rapidly that project solutions are equally, if not more, complex. Project failure is often the result. Project expert Kathleen (Kitty) Hass, PMP, zeroes in on the correct answer to deal with project complexity through Managing Complex Projects.

Kitty presents her Project Complexity Model for project leadership teams to use to diagnose project complexity and to make decisions around how to plan and manage projects based on a complexity profile. Anyone challenged with filling a leadership role on a critical project will benefit from learning how to apply complexity thinking to projects.

Course Credit: 25 PMI PDUs upon course completion. Category A / 9 Technical, 8 Leadership, 8 Strategic.

Description

Consultant and author Kathleen (Kitty) Hass, PMP, provides the insight for difficult projects by treating them as complex adaptive systems that are themselves part of an even larger complex system, the global economy. To succeed, complex projects must follow an approach that involves complexity thinking, which she describes in terms of complexity theory. The result is the new Project Complexity Model that can be used as the framework for determining the approach needed to manage a project based on the level of complexity involved.

Managing Complex Projects provides a framework for diagnosing complexity on a wide variety of projects, ranging from small, independent, short projects; through large, highly complex longer projects. The model guides the project manager through a three-step process. Detailed suggestions are provided for completing each of these steps to meet specific needs.

Managing Complex Projects can help you:

  •  Analyze the factors that contribute to your project’s complexity
  •  Diagnose the complexity profile of your various projects
  •  Ensure the appropriate project leader is assigned and the appropriate project cycle is selected
  •  Implement an appropriate management approach for the complexity dimensions involved
  •  Implement specific techniques to reduce the impact of each complexity dimension for your complex initiative

Managing Complex Projects self-paced distance learning format includes:

  •  Applicable examples demonstrating the utilization of the Project Complexity Model
  •  Practical and relevant tools and templates that are customizable for individual projects
  •  Practical content review questions demonstrating application of course concepts with fully-explained answers
  • An easy to use participant guide and course on CD
  • Unlimited 1-on-1 instructor interaction
  • And much more…
