Abstract: The scope of this paper is to evaluate specific methods of complexity management used in long-term and large-volume outsourcing situations; these methods are created to handle uncertainties and unknowns. These strategic methods will be evaluated and compared with regard to their effects. Based on a literature review, the main complexity management methods will be analysed and will be compared with the strategic recommendations in outsourcing situations. By using an evaluation model, the methods of complexity management will be put into the context of a specific case of project management. The main finding is that some methods are very suitable, for all involved parties, to be established on a strategic level in real-life outsourcing deals. The results can be used in the set-up process of an outsourcing project, to avoid a complexity trap for the involved parties and make the whole undertaking manageable.
