Michael Cavanagh has been an independent for over twenty years in a number of business sectors. In recent years, the focus of his consulting activity has been the use of systems thinking techniques to perform ‘forensic’ analysis of major project failure and the ways in which lessons can be derived and corrective process improvement implemented, deploying a combination of Soft Systems, the Viable Systems Model and a number of tools and methods developed specifically for the task. His book, published by Gower in 2011, introduced ’2nd Order’ programme management concepts and the need and justification for their application to highly complex projects. The book is aimed at both practitioners and senior sponsoring management. He has also recently published two Kindle eBooks, ‘Ethical Issues in Complex Project and Engineering Management’, and ‘Project Complexity Assessment’. Michael is an ordained Anglican priest in the Church of Ireland and is currently responsible for the churches of the Kenmare and Dromod Union, Co. Kerry. Michael can be reached at
