An examination of how to refigure project management to be more effective, particularly in terms of leadership. Contrary to the traditional wisdom of project management, planning and doing are not separate and sequential activities, but rather occur in tandem and interact in a dance of give-and-take. Successful projects require strong leadership, and this book presents five actionable principles of Results-Focused Leadership in a convincing and easy to digest format demonstrated by stories.
