Resource description

Project management is often identified with network planning techniques such as PERT, Critical Path Methods, Gantt Charts, etc. These techniques help the authors to cope with the management of complexity in a project. But projects are often confronted with a high level of uncertainty. Coping with this uncertainty requires another management approach. In this paper the authors categorize the different types of uncertainty with which a project manager can be confronted and they develop a list of tools and managerial approaches that can help the project manager to respond to the different types of uncertainty
