How do you personally manage complexity in your projects?

Examples of project complexity include:
- Significant internal or external political influences
- unknown product features or resources
- Use of a technology new to the organization
- dynamic project governance
- Highly regulated environments.

Assuming a combination of two or more of these are present in a project you are managing, what processes, techniques and tools do you use to manage?

With the above mentioned factors, I would say:

Increased Risk Management
Increased Communication Management

At least I personally faced Item 1 & 3. Item 1, enhance communication and conflict resolution and Item 3, enhance risk management and specifically Management Reserves.

Experiment wisely. Launch small probes. If the experiment is working out, then amplify the benefits from that experiment. If it is not working out, dampen the unwanted effects.

Make sure you have all the relevant information.
Make sure you understand clearly what is a stake.
What can go wrong.
Pay attention to eventual opportunities.
Complexity is not a synonym of only bad things.

In some projects stakeholders engagement is the more complex area where the most important risks come from - very frequent change in position and tolerance.
