About the Book

For project managers looking to establish credibility and drive winning results, author Tom Kendrick’s groundbreaking system provides the key to leading cross-functional, outsourced, and other types of teams through every stage of the project cycle.

Results Without Authority is the definitive book on control--teaching the three principal levels of control, including project process, influence, and metrics, among other important areas. You learn the surefire way to keep projects moving forward: by relying only on these factors.

The book’s 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,
  • and the myth of multitasking.

For project leaders lacking clear-cut authority, getting everyone on board--and keeping them there--can be a challenge. Whether you’re managing small, team-level projects or major organizational initiatives, Results Without Authority is the must-have guide to getting the best outcomes for your company.
