9780566087165: Images of Projects

In this very distinctive book, Images of Projects challenges how we think about projects in the most fundamental way: it rejects outright the idea of a one 'best way' to view all projects and also the idea of following a prescriptive approach. In contrast, Images of Projects seeks to encourage a more pragmatic and reflective approach, based on deliberately seeing projects from multiple perspectives, exploring the insights and implications which flow from these, and crafting appropriate action strategies in complex situations. Based on real examples and the authors' work over the last ten years, Images of Projects presents seven pragmatic images for making sense of the complex realities of projects. Illustrated using various models, these images are presented in ways that allow the reader to reflect upon their own mental models in relation to the different perspectives in this book.

About the Author:

Dr Mark Winter is a member of the Management of Projects research group at Manchester Business School and is a strong exponent of the need to bring academia and industry closer together in the field of project management. He recently led the UK government-funded research programme - Rethinking Project Management - and has worked with many organisations including Rolls-Royce, Tesco, Royal Liver Assurance, the National Probation Service and the NHS. He has a PhD from Lancaster University and a management consultancy background in IT. Tony Szczepanek was educated at Oxford University, has an MBA from Lancaster University, and an IS/IT background in the delivery of multi million pound projects. Formerly Group Strategic Programme Manager at the Big Food Group and IT Director at Marston's Brewery, he has held numerous senior positions and is currently CIO of Royal Liver Assurance responsible for all aspects of IT and Business Systems. He is particularly interested in the links between business strategy, business programmes and project portfolios.

Review:

'A wonderful contribution to the theory and practice of project management. It gives individuals and teams a concrete way of exploring the different dimensions of situations they are facing, and of selecting the most appropriate actions.' - Gareth Morgan, Distinguished Research Professor, Schulich School of Business, York University, Canada '...I would certainly recommend it to teachers, trainers and consultants of change and project management and will, I am sure, be using it myself in the future.' Chris Ivory, Construction Management and Economics 'I think that this is one of the most important books on PM of the last few years...' Dr Rolf Stiefel, Management-Andragogik und Organisationentwicklung
