Project management isn’t just about process. It’s also about people.
Calling upon over thirty years of experience delivering optimized project outcomes for some of the world’s leading brands, author Clinton M. Padgett reveals the “secret sauce” many leaders leave out of their project success equation. Taking what’s already working on your teams, the principles detailed in How Teams Triumph help your people maximize performance by enhancing communication; breaking down silos; and providing a proven, repeatable framework to complete projects with all stakeholders pulling in the same direction.
In the high-risk, high-reward business world, the success or failure of one project can mean the difference between career growth or career stagnation. The stakes are too high for you and your organization to leave any of it to chance.
