It’s a Complex World

In chapter 2 of Terry Cooke-Davies’ book Aspects of Complexity Stephen Hayes and Daniel Bennett write about managing projects with high complexity.  They highlight key issues that the ICCPM roundtables participants believed have significant impact on the success of complex projects (Cooke-Davies 2011, p.18-19).

In contrast the song by the Young Adults “It’s a Complex World” (YouTube video) argues that life and the world is inherently complex.

Now that you’ve had opportunity to learn a little about complex projects, who do you think is right?

  1. Are there key issues that significantly impact on complexity, as Stephen Hayes and Daniel Bennett write?
  2. Or, is the world inherently complex as the Young Adults sing?
