Exploration of the applicability of Complexity science theories to IT software development projects in the Retail industry requires a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods. Determining the existence of chaos, the edge of chaos, or of unorder, commences with the application of an iterative grounded theory analysis, categorising a sample data set against one of many frameworks that purport to aid in identifying the existence of complexity in projects. Proving the existence of chaos in this environment will validate the necessity of developing a new project management framework, one that is more aligned to complex organisational realities than the traditional quantitative project management approaches currently in use.
