In today's high-performance, competitive environment, the importance of project success has never been more critical or the failure rate more pronounced. Project Leadership provides a step-by-step program for transforming by-the-book project managers into true leaders who are capable of helping their team members plan, execute, and sustain consistent project success - even in an environment of relentless pressure, continuous innovation, and unforeseen change.
Author and project management icon James P. Lewis has created a hands-on blueprint for building a focused project team, forging it into a strong unit, and going beyond the principles of management to effectively lead it to success. Drawing on Lewis's exhaustive knowledge of project management and current best practices in leadership, Project Leadership discusses:
How to use state-of-the-art technologies to ensure project management success
Proven leadership principles, and ways to both understand and adopt them
Case studies of best-practices project leadership in action
