The book will be written by two authors who are members of PMI, educators, and consultants. The book is intended to be a practical guide to the application of complexity theory to virtual projects. Specifically, the book will be broken down into five major sections. Section 1 will outline the theory of complexity and address current deficiencies in the existing body of knowledge about project management and introduce how complexity can address these deficiencies. Section 2 will cover successful strategies that deploy complexity theory in order to make projects more successful. Section 3 will offer case studies and details on how complexity theory has been applied successfully in other organizations. Section 4 will present the building blocks on how to create communities within organization to support complexity theory. Section 5 will review and summarize the findings of the book as well as review the future of the application of complexity theory. The authors plan an extensive insctructor's companion website which will contain teaching notes, power point slides, and a solutions manual plus a tool box of solutions to common project management problems.
