This is part 2 of interview with 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.

In Part 2 of the interview, I asked Doug about these Big Ideas from his book eXtreme Project Management:

  • You say that loss of control, both real and imagined, can in part be attributed to what you call project-crazy organization.
  • The chapter on Self mastery is one of the most valuable. You make Self Mastery the number one critical success factor for delivering successful projects. You say that when working in adverse conditions, unless you choose self-mastery, you are choosing self-misery by default.
  • Definition of Self-misery
  • Take us thru the framework you outlined in the book on how to develop Self-Mastery (See yourself, Be yourself, Assert yourself and exercise you personal power)
