Managing by projects is about how people work and interact when they set out to create something new - a new product...a new service...a new way of working together. Whilst this approach to management has become the norm over the last ten years in manufacturing, service and the public sector, many managers and project team members are still learning the skills of what may be, for them, a very new way of working. This manual contains exercises and activities which stimulate learning about managing projects, focusing particularly on the people and leadership aspects. They are intended not only to make learning more fun, but also to speed up the process.The activities in the collection cover five distinct areas: Project Management Principles; Setting Objectives and Assessing Requirements; Creativity and Problem-Solving; Communication, Negotiation and Co-ordination; and, Motivation, Teamwork and Leadership. Background material on project management principles, methodologies and learning techniques support a diverse collection of activities including icebreakers, design exercises, questionnaires and assessments, project plans, brainteasers and enigmas, team challenges, and discussion exercises. The second edition includes six brand new additional activities. Two companion manuals, "Volume 2: Methods and Techniques", and "Volume 3: Training for Project Improvement", are also available.
