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.
