Abstract

We cannot close our minds to the professional handling of complexity: Projects are increasingly becoming embedded within an incomprehensible and unpredictable context. Context perceived this way, is usually associated with complexity. With this in mind, the mastery of complexity is a necessary precondition for successful project management in the twenty-first century. Additionally, we can assume that the boundaries between project management and general management are increasingly disappearing and that the tools presented in this book are applicable to all kinds of management.
