This document presents the proposal for a study of large complex projects by investigating the logics, methods, and criteria of evaluation. The research seeks to develop a greater understanding of ‘how’ large complex project are evaluated in different project-oriented organizations. In this document project complexity dimensions and the project evaluation process are interlinked to form the schema to help project-based organizations understand and address complexity dimensions in the evaluation of complex projects. This confirmation document commences with an overview of the proposed study, by addressing the primary research questions. Then a review of the relevant literature, the methodology used in the investigation, and the research plan is presented. The purpose of this research is to provide a detailed understanding of the logic behind the evaluation of large complex projects. To achieve this outcome I investigated the criteria, perspectives, and methods used to evaluate large complex projects. The three research questions, identified through the systematic literature review, are: • How can we explain the different logics used by project-based organizations to evaluate their large complex projects? • What criteria, perspectives and methods underlie the evaluation of large complex projects? • To what extent are different dimensions of project complexity (e.g. structural, technical, directional and temporal) considered in the evaluation process of large complex projects?
