Definitions of Project Complexity:

Baccarini (1996) 1 Project complexity consists of many varied interrelated parts and can be operationalized in terms of differentiation and interdependency.
Gidado (1996) 1 Project Complexity is the measure of the difficulty of implementing a planned workflow in relation to the project objectives.
Sbragia (2000) 1 The number of elements in the project, intensity of interactions between elements, and difficulty of cooperation between the functional areas.
Vidal and Marle (2008) 1 Project complexity is the property of a project, which makes it difficult to understand, foresee and keep under control its overall behavior.
Remington, Zolin, and Turner (2008) 1 A complex project demonstrates a number of characteristics to a degree, or level of severity, that makes it difficult to predict project outcomes or manage project.
Vidal et al. (2011) 2 Project complexity is the property of a project which makes it difficult to understand, foresee and keep under control its overall behaviour, even when given reasonably complete information about the project system.
