Top Customer Reviews
My favorite line in this fable: "So, no more putting sales people in project management positions."
My personal key learning item: I had never fully appreciated the importance of the Business Case in the context of project management.
Are you a project manager? It may not say that on your business card, but I'll bet you're involved in making things happen within your enterprise. This book can help you in one (or both) of two major ways: 1) you'll learn how to contribute more effectively; and, 2) if you're currently "getting in the way of things getting done," you'll learn how to stop being such an impediment.
Race Through the Forest is a one-hour read. More like a pamphlet or executive summary, but more fun.
Speaking of executives, get yours to read it. If one of them comes back to you and says it opened their eyes, or even just reminded them of when their work used to be fun, then you're on the right track. Sign 'em up as your next project sponsor!
