New Faculty Seminar Series - Stephane Tywoniak

Thursday, December 8, 2016, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

This seminar series was launched by the Telfer School of Management Research Office to promote its new professors. It represents an excellent opportunity for professors, students and community members to meet new faculty and to learn more about their research programs.

Please join us for a presentation by Stephane Tywoniak: First-order and Second-order Complexity in Projects and Project-based Organisations: A Research Agenda.

The seminar will present a research agenda about how complexity plays out in projects and project-based organizations and the responses that managers can mobilize to navigate it, as well as the consequences for strategy, governance and risk management. A particular focus will be on the interactions between levels of analysis: corporate, portfolio, program, and project.
