This book is about how to achieve constistent delivery (and avoid disaster).
The four core sections are- The Delivery - How to ensure a clear closure of your project. Deliver with a bang - don't sizzle and die.
- The Team - How to build a world-class team of the guys you have.
- The Matrix - Operating in the political force-field in international companies/organizations.
- The Project Manager- Which project is the right project for you? Zooming in on value alignment and choices.
