of technological projects that are complex and entail a lot of unforeseeable uncertainty. Using the Shamiyah project in Saudi Arabia as a case study, research shows that both approaches are applicable to the context of large-scale development projects. The applicability is dependent on the nature of the risk whether it is unforeseeable in kind or in impact while satisfying the complexity requirement in both cases. ... Read more >>
Selectionism vs Trial and Error in Large-Scale Development Projects

by Dr. Mohammad Baydoun, Visiting Research Fellow

The intellectual discourse between selectionism and trial and error theory has been widely discussed in the context of
