9781882939046: No Surprises Project Management: A Proven Early Warning System for Staying on Track

Striving for agile, adaptive teams and organizations is a growing trend in management education, and for good reason. Modern organizations operate in an environment of intense competitive pressure and technological uncertainty. No Surprises Project Management anticipated this trend and remains the best documented description of how pressure and uncertainty, when not addressed, combine to produce mediocre to poor performance. More importantly, No Surprises Project Management provides key principles and a system of practices for achieving excellent performance even in the most challenging high stakes environments. Nearly a decade after publication, the book is still praised for describing a manageable and replicable approach to helping teams and organizations succeed. The last 60 pages of the book contain detailed procedures and example templates.

About the Author:

Timm J. Esque is co-Founder and Partner of Ensemble Management Consulting. Timm helps complex project teams do what they say they are going to do, leading to faster delivery of higher quality products at lower cost. Many if not most technical projects at Intel Corporation (where Timm worked for 15 years) still begin with a project planning technique Timm helped develop called a Map Day.a Timm has been in consulting practice since 1998. His work with project teams has been featured in Product Development Best Practices Report and Training Magazine. He has been cited as an expert on performance under pressure in the Wall Street Journal and quoted in many other publications.

Review:

"Esque has seen the best and the worst in project management and its impact on the bottom line; here's a great guide for project leaders that want to raise the level of performance of their teams." -- Tom Innes, Former General Manager, Microprocessor Products Group, Intel Corporation

"Few project teams perform at anything like their maximum potential. This book describes the steps for achieving this first by having a team's performance be reliable and then by moving to breakthrough levels. It works." -- Dr. Allan Scherr, Senior Vice President, Software Engineering, EMC Corporation and Former IBM Fellow

"I've watched Timm work with project teams in very complex organizations. When they do what he describes in his new book, NO SURPRISES PROJECT MANAGEMENT, the projects meet their requirements while beating their schedules and budgets. When you want your projects to go fast and well, you must pay attention to the deceptively simple methods he outlines in his book." -- William R. Daniels, Founder and Senior Consultant, American Consulting & Training, Inc.
