Project Management in the Hybrid Workplace
For decades, organizations of all sizes and in all industries have struggled at managing projects. Even though employees primarily worked together in physical offices, rare was the project that came in on time and on budget and delivered what stakeholders expected.
The M-F/9-5 in-person world of work is gone forever. Depending on the country, more than nine in ten people would rather quit their jobs than return to the office five days per week. Brass tacks: Remote and hybrid workplaces are here to stay, and they pose formidable obstacles that complicate managing projects and launching new products.
Against this backdrop arrives Project Management in the Hybrid Workplace, my timely and highly anticipated follow-up to my award-winning book Reimagining Collaboration.
In this book, I adeptly fuse critical research and concepts from a slew of diverse and seemingly unrelated fields, including Agile software development, human resources, cognitive psychology, supply chain management, organizational behavior, and labor economics. Brimming with detailed case studies, penetrating insights, and practical advice, my twelfth book is a tour de force.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that effectively working together in a distributed and virtual fashion is essential. Phil Simon provides a clear framework to achieve this critical yet elusive goal.
