Zusammenfassung

Komplexität ist ein Begriff, der in Unternehmen und der Wirtschaftswelt häufig, fast alltäglich, verwendetet wird, zugleich wird er gerade wegen dieser weiten Verbreitung sehr oft ungenau verwendet, daher ist zunächst eine Klärung des Inhaltes notwendig. Auf der Basis eines konstruktivistischen Zuganges und der Betonung der Beobachterperspektive werden der Begriff Komplexität und damit im Zusammenhang stehende Konzepte geschärft. Als praktische Anwendungen werden bekannte Modelle des Umganges mit Komplexität wie das Cynefin-Framework vorgestellt. Speziell für Projekte stellen wir ein Modell vor, das neben Komplexität die eingeschränkte Möglichkeit des Lernens aus der Erfahrung bei nicht-repetitiven Projekten betont.
