Every aspect of our lives is becoming a set of projects. The speed of change witnessed in the past decade has radically affected the way we organize and manage our companies and work. Many of the traditional activities in organizations will soon be carried out by automation and robots. In this new landscape, projects are becoming the essential model to create value. In short, we are witnessing the rise of the project economy.
Leading projects thinker Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez explains the reasons behind, and the tremendous consequences, that this unnoticed disruption is having in our lives. He looks at how some leading companies, governments, schools, and universities have already embraced projects as the way to deliver on their strategy and ambitions. Ultimately, this book explains how individuals and companies can develop the competencies required to transform and thrive in the new digital and project-driven economy. "Talented people working together for the greater good around our world will determine our future. Antonio really captures the working together principles and practices of programme and project management that enable the relentless implementation of a comprehensive strategy to deliver a compelling vision for the benefit of all the stakeholders!" --Alan Mulally, Former CEO, Ford Motors and Boeing
"Strategy is not something you talk about - strategy is something that you do. Increasingly, the doing of strategy is all about projects. In this immensely practical and useful book, Antonio offers an expert's guide to getting and staying on top of the projects that bring your strategy to life. Reading it is like having a wise counsellor by your side during even the most challenging moments of your journey." --Rita McGrath, Associate Professor, Columbia Business School, Top 10 of Thinkers50 and bestselling author of The End of Competitive Advantage
