Methods
It draws on a series of 20 interviews with key protagonists and employs a Bakhtinian approach to narrative analysis, which explores the interplay between individual accounts and larger sociocultural themes.

Conclusions
It concludes that the success in managing the complexity of this project can largely be attributed to a systems leader approach that draws on the power of an agile network to be replenished and redeployed against rapidly evolving strategic objectives. This effectively constitutes a parallel operating structure, which is devoted to the design and implementation of strategy based on a continual assessment of the organisation and serves to strengthen rather than supersede established hierarchical structures of authority.
