“Mindfulness, courage, personality and fun. Words you don’t usually come across in a book about project management. Well, they are in abundance here - and it gives me hope for the future of Project Management.”

“Each chapter is a bite-sized treasure chest of insights, tips and anecdotes to help project leaders make projects a more enjoyable and rewarding experience for all involved. Colin has a writing style that is very entertaining, easy to read and full of personality.”

“Accessible and personable; pragmatic and actionable. An easy read, with valuable insights for new starters and experienced hands alike. Worth reading, worth sharing.”

“When I think of project management I think of spreadsheets and Gantt charts and rulers and calculators. In other words, the non-human elements of project management. Colin Ellis’s approach is from the non-traditional angle: it’s human orientated. Colin’s book is simple and easy to read and is a breath of
fresh air!”
