In spite of oodles of research and years of experience, many projects continue to fail for entirely predictable, avoidable â?? and quite frankly boring â?? reasons.? Enough is enough!? Stop managing, and start leading your project teams to the success they deserve.? With unmatched enthusiasm, Kimberly will by your guide as you explore the 12 core principles in her popular book:
â?¢ Be completely & unrepentantly obsessed with the â??Customer???.
â?¢ Provide shared, measurable, challenging, & achievable Goals as clear as sunlight.
â?¢ Engage in effective, vociferous & unrelenting Communication with all stakeholders.
â?¢ Assure that Roles & Responsibilities are unmistakably understood and agreed by all.
â?¢ Create viable Plans & Schedules that enjoy the teamâ??s hearty commitment.
â?¢ Mitigate big, hairy, abominable Risks & implement innovative Accelerators.
â?¢ Prioritize ruthlessly, choosing between heart, lungs & kidneys if necessary.
â?¢ Anticipate and accommodate necessary and inevitable Change.
â?¢ Challenge Assumptions & Beliefs, especially insidious self-imposed limitations.
â?¢ Manage the Expectations of all stakeholders:? under-promise & over-deliver.
â?¢ Learn from experience.? Make new and more exciting mistakes each time!
â?¢ Attitude of Gratitude: Celebrate success,? . . . and some failures, too.
