Today's complex projects--characterized by ambiguity and uncertainty, and fueled by high speed and high change--require a new model to succeed. Kitty's groundbreaking, standard-setting book gives us not only the rationale, but also the essential leadership and management practices for success on nine varieties of complex projects. Don't start or continue a complex project without consulting this book. It's a gem.
--Doug DeCarlo, author of eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles, and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility

Kitty's book is refreshing, insightful, and on-target. This is a serious look at the challenges we face today in managing complexity on projects. Though it is serious, it is a delight to read. Her research is impeccable, her sources current, and her ideas original. Managers who listen to her arguments and follow her advice will be at a great advantage in dealing with the 21st century's brave new world of complex project management. --J.
