Understanding and Managing Project Complexity

Ricardo Toshio Yugue, Antonio Cesar Amaru Maximiano

Resumo


O uso de ferramentas de gerenciamento de projetos é condicionado por circunstâncias como os objetivos, os recursos e os objetivos do projeto. Essas circunstâncias e outras convergem para o conceito de complexidade do projeto. O objetivo deste estudo é contribuir para a compreensão do conceito de complexidade dos projetos e das relações entre a complexidade e o uso de ferramentas de gerenciamento. Um questionário eletrônico, respondido por 313 gerentes de projetos do Brasil, foi a base deste estudo. A análise dos dados evidencia que a complexidade dos projetos gerenciados pelos respondentes é gerada pela criticidade dos objetivos e pode influenciar o uso das ferramentas de gerenciamento.
