Special: Guerilla PM - Self-Mastery with Doug DeCarlo Part 1

Play Now:

In this special episode we introduce you to Guerilla Project Management - a blog and podcast about the mindset that Project Managers must adopt to be able to effectively manage today’s complex projects.. The show is hosted by Samad Aidane and here is what he writes about this particular episode:

I had the distinct pleasure to speak to Mr. Doug DeCarlo, author of the landmark book, eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility and one of my great Project Management teachers.

Few years ago, I read this paragraph in one of Doug’s articles:

When teams heed nature’s call and default to their survival instincts, the best-intended project management methodologies and training go up in smoke. This is why, for many project managers, Guerilla Project Management (GPM) has become the de facto project management methodology of choice.

These words inspired me to start this Guerrilla Project Management blog and podcast.

Doug’s book helped me understand why, like thousands of other project managers, I was struggling leading my projects despite all my best efforts applying all the traditional project management principles, tools, and best practices that I was taught.

For the last fifteen years — from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to Beijing, China — Doug has lived in the trenches with over 250 project teams having budgets that ranged from $25,000 to over $25 million. Mission-critical initiatives were in the arenas of: information technology, financial services, e commerce, research and development, process reengineering, continuous improvement, sales generation, new product introductions and organizational change.
