What is task complexity How to manage complex tasks


We all have to cope with complex and difficult tasks in our daily routine. But often we cannot answer the question "What is task complexity?" and do not know how to manage intricate and complex tasks. Here’s a simple task complexity definition:

  • Task complexity is a collection of properties inherited by a task. These properties (like priority, due date, duration, urgency) define the difficulty of this tasks and its significance to a performer (a person who should do the task).

For example, a task becomes more complex when it has a higher priority, a shorter duration, a closer due date, a reduced amount of available resources etc. Using task complexity analysis lets define all the properties that make the task difficult and intricate.

Often to-do lists are used to manage complex tasks. To-do lists allow a performer to focus on one task and view properties of this task. Performers can use task management software to design their to-do lists and apply filters. For example, in VIP Task manager you can use various task complexity methods and techniques to develop filtered to-do lists and categorized job lists.
