Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Sometimes a book comes along that completely takes you by surprise. Instead of the usual rehash of project management under the guise of progress, Project Delivery in Business as Usual Organisations by Tim Carroll delivers something genuinely new. This clear, well written and thought-provoking book provides not only a perspective on why project management has failed to evolve in some organisations but also a structured discussion about the potential practical solutions that can be applied. ... This book is a thoroughly good read and I believe it is something that all programme managers and project directors should find time to read and consider whether they can enable a great correlation between business strategy and project delivery. If you haven't found this book yet, you need to as it will become mandatory reading for all up-and-coming programme managers and project directors.' Ed Burney-Cumming in Project

'At last, a book about how to make projects succeed in the real world. There are many books that provide us with insight into technical project management tools. In 'BAU' organisations, project managers who use them wonder why they have sore heads as they continue to bang their heads against corporate brick walls. Based on experience and insight, and in an easy to read style, Tim's book will allow you to find ways through these walls. This book allows you to consider how to integrate projects into 'non project' organisations ways of life. Tim argues that if we can make this approach part of the corporate fabric, we have a sustainable basis for change. This book offers a practical and well reasoned approach to achieving this. Those project managers humble enough to accept the need to approach change in this light will find that they can use their skills to greater advantage without the traditional roadblocks they would otherwise experience.' Mike Chilton, Group Head of Operational Risk, Standard Chartered Bank
