Best practices of Open Design and Construct management

In Tables 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 we summarise the best practices of Open Design and Construct management as can be derived from R&D management practice (Van Gunsteren, 2003) and from Open Design methodology (Van Loon, 1998; Van Gunsteren and Van Loon, 2000). We call these PII best practices for complex projects.

Management of technological innovation and management of the multi-stakeholder design process according to the Open Design methodology both require an open, non-manipulative managerial approach. We therefore speak of Open Design and Construct management, because transparency is their characteristic feature. In this chapter we will explain what we mean by this by discussing the ten aspects of project management from the preceding chapter for situations characterised by uncertainty and unpredictability, as well as discussing their limits of applicability.

In essence, Open Design and Construct management requires an open and constructive attitude aimed at respecting the interests of all stakeholders involved, and not only the powerful or knowledgeable ones.
