Five frustrations of project managers

In analogy of Lencioni's five dysfunctions of teamwork my dear colleagues and friends Marieke Strobbe, Leo de Bruijn, Menno Valkenburg and I wrote a series of articles in 2015 and 2016, in which we explore five regularly manifesting frustrations in project management. The articles are published in the magazine Projectie, the magazine of IPMA, the International Project Management Association.

March 2017 the four of us published our book around the five frustrations! A magnificant, powelful condensation of our experiences, both in the Dutch and English language. We are proud of the proces to get there, and the result!

You can order the book by clicking the cover below. 

 

If you do not want to wait for the book you ordered to fall on your door mat ànd you understand Dutch, please read some of the original articles. The pdf's are to find via the links below.
