Laufer reveals core leadership principles that are crucial to successful project leadership in dynamic and complex environments, regardless of industry, project goals, or stakeholders. Then, together with his contributors, he presents eight chapter-length case studies covering exceptionally challenging projects in a wide spectrum of industries and products a€“ from developing missiles to reorganizing companies, building spacecraft and dairy plants to flying solar-powered airplanes. Readers will discover new ways to unleash the power of autonomy and learning; adapt to change on a timely basis; a€œgive upa€ control without a€œlosinga€ control; use face-to-face interaction to maximize alignment; manage a€œno funa€ missions in hostile environments; deliver on bold ideas through sheer preparation; learn from practice a€“ and unlearn lessons that need to be unlearned.
