Abstract
The core theme of this presentation, delivered at the IEEE International Conference on Management of Innovation and Technology in Singapore, is that the way you manage a project should be driven by the dominant type of uncertainty you are confronted with.


What this is

A practical presentation that gets to the heart of how the risks and uncertainties we face on projects must influence how we manage. The talk covers several types of uncertainty on projects, including complexity, schedule variability, foreseen risks, unforeseen risks, and market and technology chaos. For each, it indicates the Project Manager style that best fits that type of project, and summarizes how the project manager would manage tasks and people on the project, during the planning stage and during the execution stage.


Why it's useful

This presentation is a great thought-provoker for anyone kicking off a project, as they select a project manager and team and determine how the project should be managed.
