Synopsis

In The Lazy Project Manager Peter Taylor reveals how adopting a more focused approach to life, projects and work can make us twice as productive. The Lazy Project Manager has been the project management book to own in the twenty-first century and the second edition brings the art of lazy productivity bang up to date. Anyone can apply the simple techniques of lazy project management to their own activities in order to work more effectively and improve their work-life balance. By concentrating their project management and learning to exercise effort where it really matters, readers will learn to work smarter. Inside this insightful and entertaining book they will discover:

* The intelligence of laziness - why smart, lazy people have the edge over everyone else;

* Why The Jungle Book's `Bear Necessities' should be the productive lazy theme tune;

* How to get the maximum output for a minimised input;

* Quick tips to productive-lazy heaven, including avoiding project surprises and being lazy on several projects at once.

Readers will also find out why they should never go ballooning, how to deliver a good Oscar acceptance speech, and why it is important for their team that they read the newspaper each morning. And on the way they will learn some, quick, simple but incredibly important things about project management.
