    Working at Warp Speed
    Working at Warp Speed
    Introduces four ''Rules of Warp Speed'' that can help readers break through the following common barriers to success: Work overload Lack of support Poorly defined goals Blame and finger pointing Unrealistic deadlines Endless meetings Poor communication Constant fire fighting Incomplete planning Constantly shifting targets or goals Offers a startling exercise-The Project Game-that demonstrates how to keep fires from burning out of control and reduce the number of fires you fight each day Everyone is a project manager-projects are what all of us do day in and day out. Skillful project management is fundamental to survival in today's warp-speed world. Yet it is often misunderstood, leading to unrealistic deadlines, poorly defined goals, and wasted time. The secret to successful project management, argues Barry Flicker, is making and keeping clear commitments-far easier said than done in a time of complex, cross-departmental projects and sometimes unclear lines of authority. Through a story about people confronting daily frustrations on the job, Flicker demonstrates how shifting focus from blaming ''the idiots out there'' to examining one's own behaviors and assumptions helps people to overcome obstacles. Working at Warp Speed shows how following four simple laws can transform workers' most frustrating complaints from persistent barriers into potential breakthrough experiences.
