Description

Details

Today’s new breed, eXtreme projects are different. They feature high speed, high change, high complexity, high risk, and high stress. While traditional projects follow the classic model of ready, aim, fire, eXtreme project managers succeed by shooting the gun and then redirecting the bullet while not loosing sight of their moving target. eXtreme Project Management provides a practical guide for leaders working under high risk and high pressure while producing the desired bottom-line results. Based on Doug DeCarlo’s extensive experience in working with more than 250 project teams, his eXtreme project management model is built around an integrated set of principles, values, skills, tools, and practices proven to consistently work under conditions of rapid change and uncertainty. eXtreme project management is based on the premise that you don’t manage the unknown the same way you manage the known. It’s a people-centric approach to high performance that makes quality of life a fundamental part of the project venture.

Book News Annotation: Intended for business managers dealing with high-speed, change-driven projects, this book suggests four accelerators for unleashing motivation and innovation, ten shared values for building trust and confidence, four business questions for ensuring customer value, and five critical success factors. The second half of the book walks through the four stages in the flexible project model for extreme projects, explains the importance of real-time communication, and provides talking points for helping senior management embrace the new organizational practices.
