This looks like a book I should read
Although I am more of a solution manager than a project manager I have managed 30 odd projects in my time and a fair few programmes. I have gradually developed a dislike for formal methodologies and templates because of their tendency to prevent the team from thinking. That said I think there are some key management skills that every project team needs, but I have rarely seen described very well. This book looks like it is my sort of style, it in my Amazon favourites in case anyone wants to buy it for me.
