Throughout both IT and business, project management is undergoing a profound paradigm shift -- from rigid and mechanistic approaches derived from the engineering and construction industries, to dynamic and flexible approaches that anticipate rapid change in technology, organizations and development approaches. In eXtreme Project Management, world-renowned project management expert Rob Thomsett presents the first one-stop guide to these powerful, radical new project management techniques. Thomsett's innovative Extreme Project Management techniques look outward to stakeholders, management and clients, and involve them heavily in the project management process. Thomsett introduces creative new processes such as RAP (RApid Planning) sessions; shows how to facilitate "open" rather than "closed" planning; and demonstrates how to integrate risk management and quality without diminishing the flexibility today's projects demand. Above all, eXtreme Project Management teaches you how to align trust, creativity, openness, and fun with a relentless focus on realizing project benefits and maximizing business value.


Project management for today's complex, chaotic business environments.

  • XPM: the first radically new approach to project management in decades!
  • Designed from the ground up for today's high-speed, fast-changing projects
  • Refocusing project management focused on people, relationships, and adding value!
  • Innovative new XPM tools: how to make them work in your organization

Traditional project management doesn't work any more: it's inward-looking, static, and just can't respond to rapid, constant change. Radical Project Management looks outward to stakeholders, management, and clients—and thoroughly involves them from start to finish. Moreover, it assumes that everything will change—and defines a flexible, ongoing project management process that encompasses both project development and support. In this book, Rob Thomsett, one of the world's leading project management consultants, presents XPM from start to finish—and introduces every tool and technique you need to make it work in your organization.

  • Refocusing project management on what matters most: people, relationships, and adding value
  • 11 radically new rules for project managers to live by
  • Innovative new XPM tools, and how to use them
  • "Open Planning" and stakeholder ownership: the heart of successful project management
  • New XPM metrics and project-tracking techniques
  • Why project managers don't need to know the gory technical details
  • Detailed case studies: how XPM is enabling creative people to do truly great work

If you've always suspected there's a more agile, flexible, intelligent way to manage projects, you're right—and XPM is it. Discover for yourself, with the most authoritative, complete, useful XPM guide ever written: Radical Project Management by Rob Thomsett.

Format: Taschenbuch
In diesem Buch sind eigentlich alle Dinge aufgezählt, die auch in meinem Projekt derzeit falsch laufen. Bemerkenswerter Weise sind sowohl die Dinge enthalten, von denen ich denke das Andere etwas grundsätzlich verkehrt machen, als auch die Fehler, die ich offenbar selbst mache. Von daher ein sehr lehrreiches Buch. Wer Tom DeMarco schätzt (aktuelles Buch "Bärentango" wieder grandios), wird auch dieses Buch lieben.

Today's guide on project management for the IT professional 27. Mai 2002
Von David Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Five years ago I read the most insightful and inspiring book on project management I had ever seen. This was morbidly titled "Deathmarch" due to the proliferation of unrealistic projects that I.T. teams found themselves caught up in.
I have now found a new contender for my favourite book on the topic, in Radical Project Management by Rob Thomsett. Coincidentally, it is part of a series edited by Ed Yourdon, the author of Deathmarch!
This book is novel in its approach by embracing two key facts.
Firstly, project management is no longer a dry topic, best left to crusty managerial types. The modern I.T. professional needs to be all of network guru, web developer, database administrator, software developer and, of course, project manager. Hence, even the most hands-on techie has to grip this topic!
Secondly, traditional project management methodologies are losing relevance in today's wired world where the only constant factor is change.
Thomsett argues that such practices are inward-looking and static. Conversely, his "Radical" philosophy looks outward, embracing stakeholders, management and end-users, seeking to involve them in the project's development from conception to implementation.
This is what Thomsett means by calling his philosophy "radical" - it departs from tradition. The term also, to my mind, plays on the "RAD" - Rapid Application Development - paradigm that boosted languages like Delphi and Visual Basic into the limelight. RAD languages also sought to involve end-users in the creative development process by allowing the rapid construction of functional prototypes.
Of course, a mere philosophy by itself is insufficient (consider the USSR!) and pleasingly, Thomsett fills his pages with case studies, details of new project management tools and how to successfully use them, and just good common-sense and stories "from the chalk face". As one reads this book, it is abundantly evident that the author is writing from a wealth of experience - this book is by an I.T. professional for I.T. professionals.
I wholeheartedly recommend it, and it certainly has found a place on my desk.

Going beyond the Gannt Charts 12. Juni 2002
Von J Pieters - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Finally a practical project management book that goes beyond Gannt charts, time lines or budgets. I have already found it useful in finding out why and where some of my projects went wrong and the lessons I can learn for the future.
Thomsett has added principles to project management that have often been talked about, but that are rarely (and effectively) applied; for example quality, realisation of business objectives, distinction between project objectives and solutions.
This is not just a book for project managers; anybody who is involved in projects in some way or another (business analysts, HR professionals, people who commission projects) will get a better understanding of what it takes to deliver projects successfully.
And if you're a movie fanatic - you'll love the references to some great classics.

Some good ideas, but heavy on jargon and distraction 16. März 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book loses its momentum by focusing on jargon and buzzwords intead of clear and solid points. The effort of reading this book is not a complete loss - there are some good suggestions and models, but any of Gerald Weinbergs books are shorter and better reads with 10x less pretension and unnecessary complexity.
Radical project management 5. Dezember 2012
Von Pieter G - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Writing this review somewhat historically as I initially purchased this about 8 years.
I enjoyed the first reading with some step-change thinking on progressing beyond incremental phased approached (especially for 2004 period) where I review this book from time to time as a refresher.
Although I still encounter people doing projects who prefer the Waterfall approach, who would definitely benefit by reading and understanding this well worn book.

Get this one! 12. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I just spent three days in a workshop with Robert Thomsett. He is an amazing speaker and overall great guy. The workshop was based on this book and, even though I haven't yet finished, I feel safe in saying that this book is perfect for anyone wanting a better understanding of project management. I am in the IT business but feel that the tools given here are applicable across the board. If possible, I also highly recommend attending one of the workshops - it was by far the best I have attended and would have been willing to sit there for another week just to pick his brain.
