Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects: Case Study Report
TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Renewal Project R10 has released a report titled Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects: Case Study Report, which includes case studies of 15 projects in the United States and three international projects that used tools that aid project managers in the delivery of complex projects. The 18 projects represent a number of different types, locations, size, and phases of development. The tools identified fall into two areas—project development and project execution.
In addition, SHRP 2 Renewal Project R10 developed two other reports:
- Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects, which describes the five-dimensional 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; and
- Guide To: Project Management Strategies for Complex Projects, which is designed to help facilitate the application of the five-dimensional project management approach for complex projects. The objective of the guide 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 guide was also developed.
