The book rests on research in construction project management and is valuable in different ways for the both experienced and novice managers in any industry. The experienced manager will discover new ways to understand their experience; what worked and why. The novice will keep coming back as the principles provide a comprehensive basis for thinking about and making decisions. I particularly recommend the principles and stories for coping with uncertainty
After years of study, Dr. Laufer has synthesized experiences of countless project managers and developed nine principles that that the most successful of them have in common. He then illustrates these principles with concise, interesting stories that will strike a chord with anyone who has managed complex projects.
A critical insight into project leadership!
