Abstract

The current understanding of project complexity is limited in that there is neither a widely recognized conceptualization of project complexity nor a convergent view on how to deal with its effects. Drawing on the extant literature concerning project complexity and complexity science, this article develops a coherent and holistic profile of project complexity and provides reflections on its implications for project management theory and practice. This profile serves as a touchstone for practitioners to better understand, assess, and address complexity in their projects and as an aid to researchers in framing their research efforts.
