Complexity Dimensions that Impact Projects

By attending this session you will be able to learn how to differentiate complex from complicated, and understand the 15 complexity dimensions obtained through a multi-industry survey, case studies and interviews with experts and practitioners. We will also share how the traditional cost estimation process is limited when dealing with complex projects, and finally see a proposed model that would support cost estimators dealing with complex projects.
