  4. 4. Project Environment Complex Projects Contracts Collaborative Change
  5. 5. Project Environment COMPLEX PROJECTS Variety of Organisational & project Interfaces Increased trades & stakeholder information Volume of Reactive issues Continual Benchmarking & Forecasting Incorporation of Records and data
