Complexity management - a gap in current methodologies

Ilja Holub

This article follows up on the author's 2010 article "How and why complexity arises in IS" in the magazine Systémová integrace (Systems Integration), which dealt with IS complexity as an important challenge for informatics, presenting a definition of complexity and describing the mechanisms by which it arises and its effects on an enterprise. The article also included a questionnaire study, through which several hypotheses were tested. In 2016 the author conducted a new study, using the same questions as in 2010 for one part and for the other part adding several other related questions on the reasons by which complexity arises in information systems and which methodologies are used for complexity management.
