Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s tricky enough to spearhead a big project when you’re the boss. But when you’re the leader of a team of people who don’t report to you, the obstacles are even greater.

Results Without Authority is the definitive book for project managers looking to establish credibility and control. A groundbreaker in the field, it supplies a start-to-finish system for getting successful project results from cross-functional, outsourced, and other types of teams. The completely updated second edition includes new information on:

• Agile methods and evolving project management tools

• Strategies for working with virtual teams

• Analytical versus “blink” decision processes

• The use (and misuse) of social media in project environments

• The myth of multitasking.

For project leaders lacking clear-cut authority, getting everyone on board—and keeping them there—can be a challenge. Results Without Authority is the must-have guide for getting the best results from your team.

Quatrième de couverture

When you’re a project manager with a team of people who don’t technically report to you, your challenge is to get Results Without Authority. This book delivers proven techniques for controlling projects and managing diverse teams in a wide variety of situations, and bringing those projects to successful closure. The concepts in this book are essential for all project managers, with and without authority, because they offer a productive alternative to “command and control” management techniques that can easily backfire.

Tom Kendrick’s system will help you get successful project results from diverse, cross-functional, virtual, outsourced, and other types of project teams by showing how to establish and build:

Control Through Process. Key project management processes, infrastructure, and the role of the project office.

Control Through Influence. Productive leadership styles, reciprocity, and maintaining relationships.

Control Through Project Metrics. Quantitative, predictive, diagnostic, and retrospective metrics for project control, motivating desired behaviors, and avoiding potential problems.

Control Through Project Initiation. The role of the sponsor in project control, the importance of project vision, project launch documentation, and the project start-up workshop.

Control Through Project Planning. Collaborative planning as the foundation of project control; planning as a key factor in setting baselines and establishing metrics.

Control During Project Execution. Measurement and interpretation of project status, informal communication, and maintaining relationships as keys to maintaining control.

Control Through Tracking and Monitoring. Controlling scope and other project parameters; formal project communication and reporting, rewards and recognition, and project reviews.

Enhancing Overall Control Through Project Closure. Sign-off, evaluating retrospective project metrics, celebrating, and rewarding the team; improving long-term project control through lessons learned.

Packed with invaluable guidance for managing projects of all scopes and in any field, Results Without Authority will help novice and experienced project leaders get the best from their project teams.

Tom Kendrick is a program manager, most recently with the Hewlett-Packard Company, and the author of Identifying and Managing Project Risk and The Project Management Tool Kit. He conducts project management classes, and presents at conferences and universities on program manage­ment, project risk, and related topics.

Ce livre souffre d'une forme sèche, dense et rébarbative, qui est une véritable torture. Il ressemble ainsi à un livre universitaire classique.

Heureusement, le contenu est de qualité et on sent la grande expérience de gestion de projets de Tom Kendrick. Les techniques, astuces et méthodes qu'il donne tout au long de son livre semblent pertinentes et adaptées, quoique parfois elles m'ont semblées un peu trop complexes et théoriques.

La grande densité des informations et leur excellente organisation par chapitre ' et dans les chapitres ' fait qu'il vous sera facile de tirer les informations que vous voulez pour traiter une problématique particulière si vous devez gérer un projet. Ce livre est ainsi une excellente boîte à outils que tout chef de projet pourra sans problème mettre dans sa bibliothèque pour s'en servir en cas de besoin, et distille un savoir qui vous évitera sans doute nombre de problèmes et autre perte de temps.

Le principal avantage, et l'écueil majeur, de ce livre est qu'il est étroitement focalisé sur les grandes organisations et leurs rouages internes. Si vous travaillez dans une TPE, une PME, ou êtes à votre compte, vous pourrez tirer des idées ici ou là sur la manière de gérer des projets complexes avec des fournisseurs et prestataires externes, mais l'essentiel du livre ne sera pas pour vous. Si vous êtes amené régulièrement à mener des projets dans des grandes organisations, foncez.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a readable project management book? 11 juillet 2006
Par Jennifer Tharp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
While I have a few project management reference books, it's rare to find a book on the topic that you can actually enjoy reading from cover to cover.

Results Without Authority covers a lot of ground, and there's something for every level of project manager. The book would serve well as a guideline for someone leading a new project management organization, or for someone who's been in the profession a while, but would like to refine their skills beyond what's done in their own organization.

I particularly enjoyed a section about how to build currency with your team -- how to start, and how to enhance it over time. The author has really done an astounding job of putting into words something I'd have a hard time describing, and he gives lots of great ideas that are much more rational and sustainable than the usual team-building exercises you still see at organizations.

One other interesting part was his detailed analysis of choosing the right metrics for the project -- a gap for many project managers. It's easiest to measure what we always measure than to make sure our measures are counterbalanced and take individual project issues into consideration.

Throughout the book, he keeps your attention with clear, concise writing and the occasional unexpected laugh. A great read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This stuff works! 19 juillet 2006
Par Patrick Neal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This stuff works! "Results without Authority" is a powerful source of tools and common sense advice for people managing projects without formal authority. And most of the projects I have managed and most of the projects I am aware of are managed by people without authority. Tom Kendrick brings a depth of wisdom that can only be learned in the trenches.

Kendrick weaves theory and practice to build a comprehensive set of tools, templates, and checklists that can be used by everyone from the newly appointed project manager to the steely veteran. This volume is the most practical, down-to-earth, treatment of managing without authority that I have ever read. And, it is a good read and an enjoyable read. "Results Without Authority" must be required reading for all project managers, whether they have authority or not. Read it today and start using it tomorrow.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of insight 26 juillet 2006
Par D. R. Fullerton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If Tom Sawyer had used this book, his friends would have done a far more than just whitewash a fence.

"Results without Authority" is just what most project people need to be successful. Projects where you control everyone are almost nonexistent. I have done project work for over a decade and this book was very helpful. The book contained so many insights that I used it as the basis for a 2 hour training session with my consulting group.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read for Entry Level Project Manager 17 octobre 2007
Par J. T. Maquiling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Results Without Authority showed me invaluable advice on how to make things work despite the handicap. It feels as if this book knows my exact situation and already has a solution for the problems that I am currently undergoing and will be experiencing. In an organization where their operations processes change in an unbelievably frequent fashion, a book like this will give insights that one might need to make things work despite the lack of direct authority.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best books on the subject; emminently readable 1 septembre 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a massive breath of fresh air.I am a credentialed PMP with a solid foundation in project management. I read a lot of material and continue to attend a lot of courses on project management. In my experience, most books are either: A) heavy on the formal processes without much in the way of actually HOW to conduct them, or B) an overview of business cases with the occasional tip and trick thrown in.

In contrast, this book talks about the whats, the whys, and most importantly the hows of being a successful PM. If you're a new project or program manager with little formal experience or education in the topic, this should be one of your first stops on the way to learning. Although it does reference the usual PMI jargon, it isn't swimming in it, and more importantly, all methods/theories and terms are explained well. It's a very approachable but thorough examination on Project Management.

The book isn't written as a manual, though it does provide an excellent reference framework in its structure. What that means is that you can easily skip to the parts you need help with, or return back to points you need to have refreshed. The tone and tenor of the book is akin to listening to a mentor provide guidance. I really wish I had this type of resource when I started PM work in the military over a decade ago.

And for those of you with decades of experience, I believe there are still some excellent points for takeaway; likely it will force you to revisit some things you take for granted, refresh your assumptions and otherwise reflect on how you do things and how you can improve.
