About the Book
Manage.Lead.Transform: A Project Manager's Guide to reducing projects timelines by 50% or more by Shakeel Akhtar and Ayesha Hakim
ARE YOU FRUSTRATED THAT ALMOST EVERY TASK ON YOUR PROJECT IS TAKING LONGER THAN PLANNED? DO YOU WANT TO DELIVER YOUR PROJECTS FASTER SO YOU CAN ADVANCE IN YOUR CAREER? Project failure is common. You know that and you have experienced it first hand. You may believe that it is because of not using the right methodology or the right technology or both. In MANAGE LEAD TRANSFORM Shakeel Akhtar and Ayesha Hakim believe that project failure starts more at the task level because of team disengagement. How-to overcome this disengagement so that every task is done at the right time by the right person is the focus of this book. Their time-tested MLT framework will help you build a trusted system to first manage the project work and then lead a high performing team and finally transform an organization. By implementing each of their 15 processes, you not only reduce project timelines but also gain visibility to advance your project management career. Each of the 15 processes of the MLT framework can be implemented very quickly thereby realizing immediate benefit to your troubled project. You can get unstuck from fixing the same task management issues and the turnaround time of getting unstuck and moving in the right direction can happen in a week or two. Most of these processes can be implemented in parallel thus fast tracking your project delivery. The approach taken by the authors is holistic and so the successes can be transferred over to other projects within the organization thus helping you become a change agent. This book will help in your journey from a frustrated project manager to a transformational leader.

Don't forget to register for the Monthly Chapter Event which takes place immediately after the Book Club.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
