The project complexity has a negative influence upon project management process particularly on the project performance. The lack of consensus on project complexity is a crucial problem as project complexity is closely correlated with the project management process as well as the project management performance. Therefore,the understanding of project complexity is of significant importance to address the problem of project management performance. Our extensive literature review enlightened the lack of consensus on project complexity till date and provided a broader view and critical analysis of its underlying concepts. The intention of this paper is to examine the project complexity factors on the project management performance in Malaysia and to provide a review of project complexity and to stimulate debate on this controversial topic. The data was analyzed for a total of 101 respondents involved in this study. Theresults indicated that there is a lack of complexity during understanding and managing project performance. It is concluded that the concept of project complexity is warrents further consideration.
Key words: Project Management / Project Complexity / Project performance / Uncertainty
