Project Delivery, Uncertainty and Neuroscience [Giveaway]

I recently sat down and interviewed Carole Osterweil and now I am happy to announce that I have two copies of her book, Project Delivery, Uncertainty and Neuroscience: A Leader’s Guide to Walking in Fog, to giveaway!

What is the book about?

Fully referenced, yet concise and easy to read, Project Delivery, Uncertainty & Neuroscience, draws on recent research in neuroscience, mindfulness, complexity and project management.

Part One is a primer. It draws explores how the human brain works to build an understanding of why people behave as they do in organisations (the social dynamics). It uses this as a platform to examine the dynamics of complexity, and attitudes to risk and uncertainty; three factors which have a fundamental impact on stress levels and project outcomes.

Part Two is primarily a toolkit. It includes a series of practical frameworks and suggestions to help you apply your knowledge from Part One. These develop your capability to read and influence the behaviors and emotions of everyone involved, and to see projects as social systems. Together these tools allow you to take the stress out of delivery, reduce complexity and improve business and personal outcomes.

Just answer the really simple question and enter your information into the box below to enter. I’ll be drawing the winners on 18 October, 2019.

Good luck!

    Thank you for all you work; I really appreciate your emails, they are always worthwhile. They help me to take a step back and a assess how and what I am doing, objectively. Keep up the good work. (I am an old civil engineer, now working mainly as a PM in the IT industry. Lots of interesting challenges – and fun.)
