In it he shows how adopting a more focused approach to life, projects and work can make you twice as productive. The Lazy Project Manager and its sequel, The Lazy Winner, show how anyone can apply the simple techniques of lazy project management in their own lives in order to work and live more effectively.
Now, in The Lazy Project Manager and the Project from Hell, Peter Taylor, with the help of Michael Finer, applies the lazy project management technique to a project that has gone seriously wrong.
Back in the comfy chair for more productive lazy wisdom and then off to the time machine to save the worst project in history – and all before tea time.
What is ‘The Project from Hell’?
The purpose of ‘The Project from Hell’, in book or workshop format, is to provide a description of a project that fails, as a basis for learning what causes this failure and how to avoid or mitigate these causes. ‘The Project from Hell’ is a rich seam of real project events described in non technical terms to the benefit of individuals and teams involved in or responsible for project or project type activity. The book will let readers run their own ‘Project from Hell’ workshop or they can contact one of The Lazy Project Managers’ partners around the world to help them run a professional workshop.
More information on the ‘Project from Hell’ workshop can be found at www.theprojectfromhell.com
