2024-25 INTERNATIONAL ROUNDTABLE SERIES

Rethinking Boundaries in Complex Projects:

Navigating the intersections and interplay of functions and stakeholders across the lifecycle

ICCPM is pleased to invite senior project leaders, subject matter experts, policy professionals and senior researchers to contribute their expertise and experience to the 2024-25 International Roundtable Series exploring the boundaries in complex projects.

The traditional view of projects is that clearly defined life cycle phases bound them from initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, and closing, to deliver defined outputs. According to PMI, all projects are a temporary effort to create value through a unique product, service or result. They have a team, a budget, a schedule and a set of expectations the team needs to meet. However, the benefits realised by the project, including the assets produced as an outcome of the project, have a life after the project. In some sectors, this is being extended to include the reuse of waste and by-products, in an emergent circular economy. Furthermore, complex projects often entail a multifaceted interplay of disciplines, each contributing crucial elements to the project’s success. Among these, procurement, contracting, asset management, sustainment, and maintenance emerge as pivotal domains.

This series will explore the evolving nature of project disciplines, the implications for complex project leadership, and whether it is necessary to extend the scope of projects beyond traditional completion points and domain functions.
