Taming complexity with Behavior Trees...

Centre Chief Investigator Geoff Dromey and his team of researchers have received recent media coverage of their Behavior Engineering methodology.

Finding a simple solution to complex systems

“The Behavior Tree is a work-flow model researchers believe will make big projects easier to manage”

David Binning, The Australian Financial Review, 9 October 2008, p7 Project Management Special Report

Taming complexity in large scale systems

“A new method developed by Professor Geoff Dromey and his team identifies defects in high-risk projects very early in the process, preventing the enormous waste of money inherent in project failure.”
