Praise

“Crisp execution of projects is critical to the survival of today’s organizations. This practical book is filled with ideas and examples that will teach you how to build project management competence in your organization.”
—Lewis E. Platt, former Chairman, President, and CEO, Hewlett-Packard Company

Creating an Environment for Successful Projects is an outstanding resource for any organization, team, or individual responsible for delivering projects effectively. We have used the authors’ experiences and knowledge to workshop the needs in our organization and continue to develop tactics to further enhance our project management practices. This book will remain on my shelf as a reference for our future.”
—James A. Lee, PE, LEED AP, President, Shive-Hattery

“The first edition was so valued that it was stolen from my NASA office after I told others that it was one of the finest project leadership books around. Glad to see that the third edition is coming out.”
—Edward J. Hoffman, PhD, former Chief Knowledge Officer, NASA; CEO, Knowledge Strategies; Strategic Advisor, PMI; and Senior Lecturer, Columbia University School of Professional Studies

Creating an Environment for Successful Projects became our bible for program leadership during PMO startup and continues to be a fundamental part of our thinking as we work to attain recognition as a truly project-based organization.”
—Colonel Gary LaGassey, former Project Office Program Manager, Aviano Air Base, Italy

“The book is rich with examples of why typical management behavior interferes with new product development. It clearly explains why upper managers are fearful, why corporate communications are so often poor, and yes, how to fix such things. The goal is to give project managers the freedom, training, and support to run rather autonomous and effective new product development programs.”
—John D. Trudel, Journal of Management Consulting
