On 08.00 to 09.00, Day 5: Friday 2nd of October

With the first versions of project management methodologies (end eighties) was expected those “best/good practices” will improve project reliability.

But the VUCA environment and pace of crises and changes created awareness that the world becomes more complex.

How to cope with this inherent complexity as project manager?

Are those practices still sufficient? Will there be some other skillset needed? What about system thinking? What is system thinking in a project management context?
