ComplexityManagement is the application of techniques to simplify complicated interactions in the environment. [temporary short description OpenAuthor].

Study of complexity and its commercial applications appears to be the NextBigThing in early years of this century, both in an organization setting and in the ICT industry. As the external environment become more volatile with globalization, so there exists a need to have continuous improvement in BusinessModel (both organization and IT) to ensure only EssentialComplexity exists.
