Description

Today's new breed, eXtreme projects are different. They feature high speed, high change, high complexity, high risk, and high stress.  While traditional projects follow the classic model of ready, aim, fire, eXtreme project managers succeed by shooting the gun and then redirecting the bullet while not loosing sight of their moving target. eXtreme Project Management provides a practical guide for leaders working under high risk and high pressure while producing the desired bottom-line results.  Based on Doug DeCarlo's extensive experience in working with more than 250 project teams, his eXtreme project management model is built around an integrated set of principles, values, skills, tools, and practices proven to consistently work under conditions of rapid change and uncertainty. eXtreme project management is based on the premise that you don't manage the unknown the same way you manage the known.  It's a people-centric approach to high performance that makes quality of life a fundamental part of the project venture.
