Visualising and managing uncertainties


This framework tool gives guidance on how to manage uncertainties in (BwN) projects. In projects using BwN design principles, uncertainty can play a bigger role than in traditional projects, as unpredictable natural dynamics are proactively used in the projects’ design. Uncertainties can be managed with an appropriate strategy after identification and classification of the uncertainties. A classification for uncertainties and strategies for dealing with specific types of uncertainties are provided in this tool. The tool is meant especially for teams and managers developing BwN-type projects. No special skills are required.
