Detailed Description:
Complex projects are often the most high-profile projects within an organization. How can early warning signs be identified and acted upon, so that problems are avoided and projects are successful in delivering the expected value for their owners and other stakeholders? What signals should we look for? Looking for early warning signs takes more than a keen eye.

Collaborating with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim and the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, Ole Jonny Klakegg, Terry Williams, Derek Walker, Bjørn Andersen, and Ole Morten Magnussen have expanded on their research of governance frameworks and guidelines as well as provided interviews with experts and case studies from Australia, Norway, and the United Kingdom.

This international report identifies early warning signs in highly complex projects and offers tips on how to combat them. Six defined research questions shed light on this important topic:

1. How successful are current project assessment methods in trying to uncover early warning signs of problems?
2. How do current project assessment methods try to uncover early warning signs of problems?
3. Why do methods fail to detect early warning signals?
4. How can project assessments handle the complexity in projects and their context?
5. Which practices seem more appropriate in which contexts?
6. What are the most important early warning signals to look for in the different contexts?

Early Warning Signs in Complex Projects will help you see through the complexity of project assessments to recognize problems before it is too late and to improve the possibility for successful projects.
