One of the best selling books in project management of the last years is Peter Taylor's "The Lazy Project Manager". As a thought leader, he reveals how adopting a more focused approach to life, projects, and work can make a project manager twice as productive. His 'productive laziness' approach builds on the Pareto principle that states that for many phenomena, 80 per cent of consequences stem from 20 per cent of the causes.
Peter is a great storyteller. In addition to internal projects, he has vast experience in project business management. He has managed projects under contract for paying customers and has also trained project managers in these roles. He also knows the other side - projects outsourced to complex project supply networks, made of contractors, subcontractors, etc., distributed over several tiers and with the difficulties that are caused by often conflicting business interests.
