The primary purpose of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the practices used by project managers to manage uncertainty and risk on projects of high complexity. The research questions explore the relationship between uncertainty and risk management approaches and processes and perceived project complexity; the prevalence of risk management approaches and processes considered to be "in advance" of general prescribed industry risk management standards; and perceptions of project success in relation to uncertainty and risk management.
