The Project Manifesto: Transforming Your Life and Work with Critical Chain Values
Rob Newbold and Bill Lynch bring you The Project Manifesto, is a fictional story with real life lessons that forces the reader to reconsider the traditional approach to developing new products. The Project Manifesto about the adoption of the critical chain project management methodology--an approach that has been very successful and has been around for nearly 20 years, but has not been widely adopted. We tend to think about “change” in terms of what we do. We get different results when we choose to think and therefore act in different ways. So change programs--whether they be self-improvement or business-improvement--tend to focus on the ’what to change’. Whether it be new activities, new processes, or new tools, the prescription for change typically culminates in a list of things to start or stop doing. It is rare that a change program delves deeply into the process of how to cause the change, and for understandable reasons.

I would definitely recommend this for any person ranging from students to CEO’s.” – Lea
