International Institute for Learning published a new book by George Pitagorsky "The Zen Approach to Project Management: Working from Your Center to Balance Expectations and Performance". The book discloses how wisdom and harmony of Zen can be applied to the processes and objectives of project management to increase productivity, relieve stress, and establish healthy relationships between people engaged in projects.
The author shows readers that projects shouldn't be as complex and stressful as they are and it is Zen that helps to avoid frequent conflicts and remove unnecessary complexity from our lives.
The approach allows people involved in planning, initiating and delivering projects to get things done with harmony and balance:
· You can increase your performance if consider yourself as an integral part of project environment
· You can do projects as well as they can be done if you remove unnecessary stress and complexity
· You can achieve excellence if you remain calm and energetic when you face challenging circumstances
