Favoring resilience in increasingly complex environments. Development of an adaptive approach for Large Engineering Projects Management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Traditional methodologies for managing projects are too constraining to help organizations facing growing levels of complexity. Large Engineering Projects – here intended as large-scale, complex projects delivered through various partnerships between public and private organisations [van Marrewijk at al., 2007] – results as very complex to be managed as they invoke coordinated application of capital, sophisticated technology, intense planning and political influence [Gellert & Linch, 2003]. Adaptive methodologies seem to favour resilience in increasingly complex environments such as the ones in which LEPs are developed in.
