TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Renewal Project R10 has released a prepublication, non-edited version of a report titled Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects that describes a five-dimensional project management approach for complex projects.
The goal of the five-dimensional approach is to identify issues that should be planned and managed proactively, rather than retroactively. The five areas of the new project management approach address cost, schedule, engineering requirements, external influences, and financing.
In addition, SHRP 2 Renewal Project R10 developed a report titled Guidebook: Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects
that is designed to help facilitate the application of the five-dimensional project management approach for complex projects. The objective of the guidebook is to identify and communicate the critical factors involved in successfully managing complex transportation design and construction projects. A training course based on the information in the guidebook was also developed.
