Review: 'Results Without Authority' by Tom Kendrick

If you're responsible for leading a project in a modern company, there's a 99.9% probability that at least one of the members of the team doesn't report to you. Results Without Authority will teach you how to lead a project team effectively via influence and clear communication.

Tom Kendrick is a program manager at Hewlett-Packard, and has a great deal of experience in leading large, complex project teams. In Results Without Authority, you'll learn about project control, project management processes, building effective relationships, planning, and monitoring progress.

The straightforward structure of this book makes it easy to quickly find sections that are relevant to your current projects. Examples are used liberally to illustrate key concepts and practices.

Appendix A contains a list of common project management questions, and alone is well worth the price of the book. If you're responsible for leading a project, large or small, read Results Without Authority.
