4.0 out of 5 stars Think People or Fail (Probably)!, 25 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Project Psychology (Hardcover)
This is a well rounded and very accessible introduction to a critical area in project management: The people dimension and how psychological models and tools can be used to improve project success.

The project management profession recognises the need for a wide range of leadership competencies (e.g. APM Body of Knowledge). Most of what is presented will be familiar to anyone who has undertaken leadership development programmes, CPD around soft skill competencies, etc. The strength of this book is how it brings together psychological approaches to these competencies in the context of project management. It does this well, provding good insight and awarness to the reader, and provides direction to further reading.

If I have one criticism, and accepting each area is a substantive topic in its own right and may require specialist intervention, it is that more practical and usable content (e.g. tools and checklists)could be presented.

An excellent little book to get you going effectively if you are starting out on Twitter (and TweetDeck) or have been on it a while and need a few rough edges sorting on basic Twitter etiquette. A very good writing style that has empathy and gets the key points over well.

It's not a Twitter / social media stategy and marketing book.
