“Dealing with the surprise of unexpected disruptions is central to being a manager of projects” but “Why is plain English and common sense so complicated?”

I am just reading an article in the latest International Journal of Project Management which I receive as part of my membership of the Association for Project Management.

I was really excited to read that the unexpected can happen and that these are not indications that something has gone wrong nor are they occasions for a Project Manager to feel self-doubt. Yay….a scientific paper stating that stuff happens sometimes, of course, and it is OK.

Great stuff!!

But why is the title of the paper need to be “The wisdom of conversations: Existential Hermeneutic Phenomenology for project managers” ????

It makes me wonder what we are over-complicating in our projects?
