Managing complex projects: networks, knowledge and innovation. By Neil Alderman, Chris Ivory, Ian Mcloughlin and Roger Vaughan, Routledge, London, 2014. 154 pp, ISBN 978-0-415-29958-9, £80 (hb)

Concerned with the management of complex long-term engineering projects, this important volume, of great interest to postgraduate students of business, technology management and engineering, reports on a set of rich, novel and unique findings concerning the conduct and management of three high profile and complex projects. The major investments which constitute complex long-term projects represent an increasingly important source of economic activity, often with particularly significant consequences for economic growth and public policy. This informative volume expertly contributes to broader debates concerning new organizational forms, knowledge management and organizational learning and the management of innovation in project-based settings.
