9781554891382: Project: Impossible - How the Great Leaders of History Identified, Solved and Accomplished the Seemingly Impossible — and How You Can Too!

Nothing is impossible if you have unlimited time, resources, and flexible objectives. Project managers never find themselves in such a situation. Our projects are impossible if they can't be done within the constraints... but sometimes there's a way around even the most challenging barrier. What can you do when the situation looks hopeless? In this exciting journey through history, you'll learn how the greatest leaders and project managers of the past took on impossible challenges...and succeeded. Here are only three examples: When he wanted to be first to fly nonstop to Paris, Charles Lindbergh was up against competitors with more funding, more experience, and over a year's head start. His strategy? Rethink the thresholds of risk. The other generals laughed at George Patton when he offered to send two divisions to rescue the Battle of the Bulge in only 48 hours. His strategy? See the future and get ready for it early. For mission director Gene Kranz, the odds against a successful rescue of Apollo 13 were daunting at best. His strategy? The Kranz Dictum, a powerful strategy to deal with crises even before they occur. In PROJECT: IMPOSSIBLE, you'll learn a step-by-step methodology to succeed when facing even the most difficult projects. You'll learn Dobson's Laws of Project Management and discover the Godzilla Principle. From redefining the problem to challenging the project parameters, you'll know how to attack a seemingly impossible project... and get the job done.
