Human behavior.The interplay between diverse individuals and groups.Ambiguity.Uncertainty of emerging issues and lack of understanding or confusion.Complexity itself is a perception of an individual based on personal experience, observation, andskill. Rather than being complex, a project is more accurately described as containing complexity.Portfolios, programs, and projects may contain elements of complexity.When approaching the integration of a project, the project manager should consider elements thatare both inside and outside of the project. The project manager should examine the characteristics orproperties of the project. Complexity as a characteristic or property of a project is typically definedas:Containing multiple parts,Possessing a number of connections between the parts,Exhibiting dynamic interactions between the parts, andExhibiting behavior produced as a result of those interactions that cannot be explainedas the simple sum of the parts (e.g., emergent behavior).Examining these various items that appear to make the project complex should help the projectmanager identify key areas when planning, managing, and controlling the project to ensureintegration.Copyright @ 2017.
