Description

Informationen zum Autor Michael Cavanagh is a consultant specialising in organisational learning, development and project management. In his 40-year career, Michael Cavanagh has worked as a Programmer, Systems Analyst, Project Manager, Department Head and Consultant in a number of business sectors. In recent years, he has concentrated on the transfer of knowledge and wisdom in an organisational context. This work on experiential learning has led to the focus of his research and consulting activity being the use of systems thinking techniques to perform 'forensic' analysis of major project failure and the ways in which lessons can be derived and corrective process improvement implemented, applying these ideas in very large long-term projects. Michael has worked alongside many organisations in Defence, Transportation and Petrochemical sectors across Europe, the USA, Canada and the Middle East. He is a regular speaker at international conferences and in major Business Schools. Michael is also an ordained Anglican priest in the Church of Ireland, responsible for the churches of the Kenmare and Dromod Union, Co. Kerry. Zusammenfassung If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got, and if it's not good enough, you need to do something else. As project complexity increases, so too does the need to do new things. This book addresses the issues of a complex, unstable, uncertain environment with all its associated difficulties. Inhaltsverzeichnis Contents: Foreword; Introduction; Part I Uncertainty, Complexity and Impact on Projects: What makes projects complex?; First and second order project management; Leadership in an uncertain world; Outcomes and ethics. Part II Second Order Tools and Tactics: The systems approach to project management; Experiential learning; Appropriate contracting; Conclusion; Appendices; References; Some suggestions for further reading; Index.
