Dealing highly complexity and innovation in the projects is difficult and requires more than conventional
management tools and methods as those types of project won’t be handle regular basis. Those complexity
and innovation should be tackle hand by hand. In this article, the literature review of previous work is
provided and then followed by detailed the research plan on managing complexity and innovation in the

The basic model makes the following assumptions:
1. Environmental fluctuations may have a negative
effect on the number of species. This effect is due
to physiological stress, which may even cause the
extinction of some species.
2. Both effects are independent and additive.
3. Both effects, stress and competence, can be
represented by average values in two different
parameters, which may be considered as constants.
