I have presented to, worked with, and trained hundreds of project managers across the world and I always advocate putting the right level of fun into the project work. I have personally seen how it can improve project morale and help keep moving forwards in a positive manner even in challenging times. Now whilst there are, quite rightly, lots of books about the serious side of the profession there are none that address the more enjoyable aspects, and so I give you The Project Manager Who Smiled. A superb resource of inspiration and entertainment; you’ll find this book invaluable in creating successful projects since: • A good laugh not only reduces tension and relieves stress, but also helps to increase team bonding and boost morale; • When you’re happy, you are more productive, more creative, more open, more likeable and a better leader. It is packed full with ideas and jokes, inspirational thoughts and quotes, suggestions and maxims, anecdotes and all manner of good material that I just know you will steal and use in your own projects – and that is exactly what I want you to do. Wrike, a leading provider of project management software, supported the release of this book by Peter Taylor that focuses on the practical value of humor in the day-to-day work of project managers and their teams. Wrike and the author are united by a common idea of making the daily work of project teams stress-free, which became the backbone of this partnership. “In our recent survey on working habits, good mood ranked as the 2nd strongest productivity catalyst. Over 57% of respondents said that it motivates them a lot. If we want to work on our projects in an efficient and stress-free way, jokes and humor might be a tool no less powerful than accurate plans, helpful software and many other things,” said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO, in his foreword to the book. “At Wrike, we are winning at a very competitive space. That takes a lot of hard work, and one of our productivity secrets is that humor is a big part of our culture.”
