Some of the most successful applications of system dynamics have been in the area of project management. Measured in terms of number of applications, number of practitioners, academic papers, value of consulting revenues, and value to clients, “project dynamics” stands as a model for success in the field. This presentation reviews the history of system dynamics work in project management, organized into three categories: (1) typical project dynamics and the underlying structures that create those dynamics; (2) applications of system dynamics to project management practice – success stories and policy messages; and (3) directions for future research and writing.
