About the Author

Christer Sandahl is a master of science in electrical engineering from the famous Swedish Chalmers University of Technology. Throughout his lifelong career, he has been deeply involved in product development of mechanics, electronics, and programs  in local, regional, and international product development companies. During his time at Sony Ericsson, he received the “president's award” from the hands of Miles Flint for establishing reuse between mobile phones. He has seen skilled developers and talented managers trying hard to develop great products. In fact, far too hard! Development was in general not well understood and did not scale up with large organizations and extensive products; different technologies and departments did not integrate and communicate, and so forth. In the end, products turned out less than great and people involved understood that they could have done much better. Christer concluded that complexity in details and in superstructures, and the complex relations between these two, were overlooked and never adequately explained. To make it worse, development models used at that time were fragmented, small-scale, schoolbook-style, or just incomprehensible. The solution was Cpdm, invented by Christer to explain and show how to cope with complexity wherever complexity creates difficulties and obstacles.
