Our research continuous and is currently expanding into several new areas:

Additional Applications for the Diamond of Innovation

  • Integrating innovation management and project management
  • Creating quantitative measures to assess the project challenge (beyond classical risk management)
  • Building tools for project managers for planning at the work package levels by assessing centrality and criticality and their
  • Impact on project planning and resources.
  • Identifying additional dimensions of uncertainty and complexity beyond the “Diamond.”

Complex Project Management

  • Distinction between complex and complicated projects
  • Extending SPL to complex projects
  • Assessing strategic value in complex and mega projects

The Challenge of Innovation in Highly Complex Programs

  • Aerospace versus construction
  • Identifying additional dimensions for better assessment of project resources
