In The Lazy Project Manager and the Project from Hell, Peter Taylor applies the lazy project management technique introduced in his Kindle bestsellers The Lazy Project Manager and The Lazy Winner to a project that has gone seriously wrong. Based on a workshop Peter has been delivering for several years, the information provided allows you and your team to undertake your own Project from Hell workshop where you analyze the problems and prepare an improvement plan that will be the basis for rescuing the project. The authors provide substantial information about ‘The Project from Hell’, including its background, start-up, progress and events. Although the workshop is based around an IT project the issues discussed and lessons learned are applicable across a wide range of projects: it could be a marketing campaign, new product introduction or other project-based activity. By engaging with this fascinating case study you and your team will equip yourselves to escape from project hell and find the path to project heaven. The authors have between them more than 25 years of project management experience. Peter Taylor is a dynamic professional who has achieved notable success in business. He is also an accomplished communicator, leader and professional speaker, popular around the world for keynotes and as an event host. The Lazy Project Manager was a Kindle bestseller and a page one bestseller in the business category on amazon.com. With Infinite Ideas he also published its follow-up, The Lazy Winner. More information can be found at his website, www.thelazyprojectmanager.com, and through his free podcasts in iTunes. Michael Finer is founder and managing director of Dylanmae, a training, mentoring, education, consulting and support operation with a focus on project intelligence and Corporate Performance Management.
