Reckons that change tends to generate more change and projects should only be undertaken under extreme need to solve a problem — something that may stop one achieving the goals (as long as one knows what the goals are!). Believes there are 4 different types of concept underlying all projects and discusses these in depth. Suggests that in assembling project teams the main requirements are team leaders and team members — of which a balanced need is: doers; solvers; checkers; and knowers. Concludes projects have to be treated differently to add value in the correct areas.
