    schema:description "In order to succeed in today's business world, you cannot simply operate well, you have to innovate well. In most companies today, there are more people working on projects, because true innovation and effective change occur through projects, not operations. But despite the explosive number of projects launched, many companies continue to obsess over operational excellence. As a result, most projects fail - largely because managers still treat all projects alike. This approach does not accommodate uncertainty. If anything unexpected happens, the project goes off track. Reinventing Project Management provides a new and highly adaptive model for planning and managing projects that makes for agile project managers and solid business results. Based on an unprecedented study of more than 600 projects in a variety of businesses and organisations across the globe, this book is the first to advise managers to step back, and understand the true nature of the project at hand before diving into action."@en ;
