"The Blind Men and the Elephant is an eye-opener about the human dynamics that come into play on every project. Don't start your next project till you've read it." - Naomi Karten, author of Communication Gaps and How to Close Them; "I appreciate Schmaltz' ability to paint a picture of project management that includes the most important ingredient - people. Understanding and integrating the concepts of The Blind Men and the Elephant will make managing projects and people a hell of a lot more fun." - Chuck Kolstad, President and CEO, ANTARA.net; "These stories are fertile ground for discovering your own epiphanies and useful distinctions. This is about the chaotic beauty of human organizations creating the many calamities we all see as they do their best to succeed. Expect these difficulties to emerge. Do not be surprised by them. Assume the best of others. And forge forward as you explore your elephant." - David Socha, Lecturer, University of Washington's Computer Science & Engineering departmentVom Verlag:
"The Blind Men and the Elephant" shows how anyone can gain power over their ambiguous, so-called "wicked" project assignments. Using "The Blind Men and the Elephant" as a metaphor for project work, David Schmaltz explains how a 'Follow the Leader' orientation creates wicked projects by focusing attention away from the real source of power and authority - the individual. Using real-world stories, it undermines the excuses that keep people trapped in meaningless work, and creates a practical means for anyone to overcome the inevitable difficulties of real work.
