Design and construct management of complex projects

If best practices for project management as recommended in the mainstream literature are inappropriate in complex construction projects, what should then be considered best practices for managing these complex projects? Our approach to answer this question has been twofold:

1. As the realm of industrial R&D is also characterised by uncertainty and unpredictability, we have investigated to what extent best practices in industrial R&D are also recommendable in the management of complex construction projects.

2. As complex construction projects invariably involve a large number of stakeholders with conflicting interests, we have paid attention to the managerial concepts from Open Design methodology, which is aimed at multi-stakeholder planning and design problems.
