Reinventing Project Management

The Diamond Approach To Successful Growth And Innovation. Projects are the engine of business development. Unfortunately, many projects focus on efficiency and not on the strategic impact they need to provide. Therefore, it is necessary to rethink the project work method. The book describes how to shift focus from the traditional project triangle to the project’s impact in the short, medium and long term.

Full description

A new project approach is needed

In fact, the number of projects in most organizations today is expanding while operation is shrinking. Yet, since many companies still focus on operational excellence and efficiency, most projects fail largely because conventional project management concepts cannot adapt to a dynamic business environment.

From thinking in predictability to thinking in impact

Moreover, top managers neglect their company’s project activity, and line managers treat all their projects like part of operations. Based on a comprehensive study of more than 600 projects in a variety of businesses and organizations around the globe, Reinventing Project Management provides a new and highly adaptive model for planning and managing projects to achieve superior business results.

Who is airborn leadership?

As a project manager I have always lacked a platform where I could click in and get inspiration, relevant knowledge and concrete tools, regardless of time and place. A wireless toolbox where knowledge came to me through the air. A help that could give me a much needed boost in my current challenge.

You have never been more important as a project manager. Projects are the engine in developing a better business, new products, improvements in society and the global transformation to sustainable energy and production. Your leadership is therefore crucial. As a leader and project manager, you are the tool that creates the results.

I hope airborn leadership can be your gateway to knowledge within project management, no matter what journey you are on.
