Summary
"In today's business environment, where complexity, chaos, and uncertainty dominate, the old tried-and-true methods of managing projects just don't get the job done. In this new book, management author J. Davidson Frame gets to the heart of the new realities of managing projects with a penetrating look at the challenges faced by today's project managers." "Drawing on his twenty years of experience consulting and training on project management in companies such as NCR, AT & T, and 3M, Frame introduces a new set of core competencies for managerial success in a corporate climate where downsizing, outsourcing, and employee empowerment are facts of life. He demonstrates why today's project managers must transform themselves from implementors into initiators - and why they need to get up to speed on such essentials as working with teams and flattened hierarchies, ensuring customer satisfaction, managing contracts, and dealing effectively with risk."--Jacket
