This paper aims to improve the execution of complex projects by the development of a functional framework using a systems approach guided by the six steps from the Deweyan Inquiry. Readers unfamiliar with the systems approach I recommend reading the chapters 1,2,4 and 5 of the Delft Systems Approach(Veeke,2008). The developed framework offers a common approach in an empty, conceptual model. In this model the different functions, their relations and interdependencies are defined, offering a common approach for the controlled and repetitive execution of complex projects while maintaining the flexibility to tune the model to a specific project.
