In The Lazy Project Manager and the Project from Hell, Peter Taylor applies the lazy project management technique introduced in his Kindle bestsellers The Lazy Project Manager and The Lazy Winner to a project that has gone seriously wrong. Based on a workshop Peter has been delivering for several years, the information provided allows you and your team to undertake your own Project from Hell workshop where you analyze the problems and prepare an improvement plan that will be the basis for rescuing the project. The authors provide substantial information about ‘The Project from Hell’, including its background, start-up, progress and events. Although the workshop is based around an IT project the issues discussed and lessons learned are applicable across a wide range of projects: it could be a marketing campaign, new product introduction or other project-based activity. By engaging with this fascinating case study you and your team will equip yourselves to escape from project hell and find the path to project heaven. The authors have between them more than 25 years of project management experience. Peter Taylor is a dynamic professional who has achieved notable success in business. He is also an accomplished communicator, leader and professional speaker, popular around the world for keynotes and as an event host.

    “Powerful, compelling, and well researched . . . demolishes what may be the most destructive myth in America.” —David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy   The Self-Made Myth exposes the false claim that business success is the result of heroic individual effort with little or no outside help. Brian Miller and Mike Lapham not only bust the myth; they present profiles of business leaders who recognize the public investments and supports that made their success possible—including Warren Buffett, Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry’s, New Belgium Brewing CEO Kim Jordan, and others. The book also thoroughly demolishes the claims of supposedly self-made individuals such as Donald Trump and Ross Perot. How we view the creation of wealth and individual success is critical because it shapes our choices on taxes, regulation, public investments in schools and infrastructure, CEO pay, and more. It takes a village to raise a business—and it’s time to recognize that fact.

    ABC News anchor Dion Lim’s empowering workplace communication strategies for women in any industry
    “As women, we’re constantly told to speak up, lean in, and be a badass . . . We absolutely should. We must! But we have to execute these things in the right way.”
    In a fast-paced world where opportunities appear-and shift-at a moment’s notice, how you communicate can, quite simply, make or break your career. Your work environment today includes a diverse array of people and personalities. The ability to interact with all of them, think on your feet, and grab a good opportunity when it’s facing you is the special sauce that will help you achieve your goals.
    Dion Lim has seen it all. As an Asian-American woman in the hyper-competitive, white-and male-dominated business of TV news, her career path required a powerful blend of street smarts, determination, and a willingness to learn from mistakes-all of which she learned on the job. Today, she’s an ABC anchor in one of the biggest cities in the country.
    In Make Your Moment, Dion guides you through what she has learned on the career battlefield and what it means for other working women today. She’ll take you through the treacherous-and often entertaining-landscape of the modern workplace, covering virtually every situation you’re likely to experience. From the art of thinking quickly on your feet to #MeToo moments, you’ll learn how to master office politics, make online/social media dynamics (good and bad) work for you, and thrive under pressure.
    Dion learned how to stay true to herself, so she could find her moment and make it, rising from a local reporter to the national stage.
    Now it’s your turn.

  • Embezzlement and High Treason Louis XIV's France - The Trial of Nicolas Fouquet - cover

    Embezzlement and High Treason...

    A look at life in the court of King Louis XIV, the politics of the time, and the trial of a man who knew too much for his own good. 
    From 1661 to 1664, France was mesmerized by the arrest and trial of Nicolas Fouquet, the country’s superintendent of finance. Prosecuted on trumped-up charges of embezzlement, mismanagement of funds, and high treason, Fouquet managed to exonerate himself from all the major charges over the course of three long years, in the process embarrassing and infuriating Louis XIV. The young king overturned the court’s decision and sentenced Fouquet to lifelong imprisonment in a remote fortress in the Alps. 
    A dramatic critique of absolute monarchy in pre-revolutionary France, Embezzlement and High Treason in Louis XIV’s France tells the gripping tale of an overly ambitious man who rose rapidly in the state hierarchy—then overreached. Vincent J. Pitts uses the trial as a lens through which to explore the inner workings of the court of Louis XIV, who rightly feared that Fouquet would expose the tawdry financial dealings of the king’s late mentor and prime minister, Cardinal Mazarin. 
    “A compelling account of a political drama in mid-seventeenth century France, but it is also a window into the process by which rule of law gradually became established . . . [and] I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.” —EH.Net 
    “Pitts’s book examines the show trial of Fouquet, and…the political process that created such an unfair outcome for a man who is often seen as one of the most well-known scapegoats in French history. Pitts has succeeded masterfully in weaving a powerful narrative that exposes convoluted corruption and mismanagement of ancient régime France.” —Renaissance Quarterly
