Présentation de l'éditeur
Now whilst there are, quite rightly, lots of books about the serious side of the profession there are none that address the more enjoyable aspects, and so I give you The Project Manager Who Smiled.
A superb resource of inspiration and entertainment; you’ll find this book invaluable in creating successful projects since:
• A good laugh not only reduces tension and relieves stress, but also helps to increase team bonding and boost morale;
• When you’re happy, you are more productive, more creative, more open, more likeable and a better leader.
It is packed full with ideas and jokes, inspirational thoughts and quotes, suggestions and maxims, anecdotes and all manner of good material that I just know you will steal and use in your own projects – and that is exactly what I want you to do.
Wrike, a leading provider of project management software, supported the release of this book by Peter Taylor that focuses on the practical value of humor in the day-to-day work of project managers and their teams.
Wrike and the author are united by a common idea of making the daily work of project teams stress-free, which became the backbone of this partnership.
“In our recent survey on working habits, good mood ranked as the 2nd strongest productivity catalyst. Over 57% of respondents said that it motivates them a lot. If we want to work on our projects in an efficient and stress-free way, jokes and humor might be a tool no less powerful than accurate plans, helpful software and many other things,” said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO, in his foreword to the book. “At Wrike, we are winning at a very competitive space. That takes a lot of hard work, and one of our productivity secrets is that humor is a big part of our culture.”
