Consequences of applying best practices for simple projects to complex projects and vice versa

In the preceding chapters we described two categories of best practices of project management:

1. For straightforward and relatively simple projects (PI);

2. For complex projects characterised by uncertainty and unpredictability (PII).

This raises the question of what happens if the first category of best practices, PI, is applied in a complex, unpredictable situation SII. Conversely, what will happen if the second category of best practices, PII, is applied in a relatively simple, predictable situation, SI. These questions will be discussed in this chapter.
