In this new book, management author J. Davidson Frame gets to the heart of the new realities of managing projects with a penetrating look at the challenges faced by today's project managers." "Drawing on his twenty years of experience consulting and training on project management in companies such as NCR, AT & T, and 3M, Frame introduces a new set of core competencies for managerial success in a corporate climate where downsizing, outsourcing, and employee empowerment are facts of life. He demonstrates why today's project managers must transform themselves from implementors into initiators - and why they need to get up to speed on such essentials as working with teams and flattened hierarchies, ensuring customer satisfaction, managing contracts, and dealing effectively with risk."--Jacket." ;
