The Social Project Manager describes a non-traditional way of organising projects, managing project performance and progress. A way that enables delivery, at the enterprise level, of a common goal for the business; one that harnesses the performance advantages of a collaborative community. Peter Taylor draws on research from projects and the worlds of social media and communication to paint a vivid and practical guide to the why and how of social project management. He provides an explanation of the benefits, the tools and the constraints so that readers can navigate through to an approach that is sensitive to the culture of their organization and the nature of the projects that they run.
