When you’re in charge, but you’re not “the boss,” how can you get a project done? This book provides the answers you need!

It’s tricky enough to spearhead a big project when you’re the boss. But when you’re the leader of a team of people who don’t report to you, the obstacles are even greater.

Results Without Authority is the definitive book for project managers looking to establish credibility and control. A groundbreaker in the field, it supplies a start-to-finish system for getting successful project results from cross-functional, outsourced, and other types of teams. The completely updated second edition includes new information on:

• Agile methods and evolving project management tools

• Strategies for working with virtual teams

• Analytical versus “blink” decision processes

• The use (and misuse) of social media in project environments

• The myth of multitasking.

For project leaders lacking clear-cut authority, getting everyone on board—and keeping them there—can be a challenge. Results Without Authority is the must-have guide for getting the best results from your team.
