    In today's business environment, "complexity" is a phenomenon that is ingrained in many disciplines, approaches, and solutions. Whether referred to in the context of a process, product, or personnel--one fact remains: complexity is here to stay! The focus and emphasis on simplifying complexity have never been greater than what they are today in the domain of project and program management. A complex system is a system composed of many components which may interact with each other. Examples of complex systems are Earth's global climate, organisms, the human brain, infrastructure such as power grid, transportation or communication systems, social and economic organizations (like cities), an ecosystem, a living cell, and ultimately the entire universe.

    The Complexity Challenge sends groups on a journey through the acres of nature surrounding Sugar Lake Lodge, looking for hidden resources to complete a designated multi-level task. This customized adventure is designed to recreate everyday business challenges like competing priorities, complex stakeholder demands, ambiguous instructions.   Resilience in the Workplace: How do we flourish amidst challenge, change, and complexity?
