This book contains a treasury of lessons and techniques that will benefit project teams of any experience level. The lessons in this book are easy to read, understand, and apply—and they will help you not only survive but also thrive in today’s project management world. It can also help you avoid the kinds of mistakes that will derail.
Your aim should be to make The SEWA Project Management Model a part of your daily projects (big or small). I urge you to read this book slowly and then reread it. Dog-ear the pages that you might want to revisit or find interesting.
Take it all in. Throughout the text, I have provided famous quotes where I invite you to pause, review, and contemplate. However, you don’t necessarily have to pause after each quote. Just get a global sense of the entire story we are telling.
I urge you to give The SEWA Project Management Model a test drive and make it your own. Work toward letting the model become second nature. I encourage you to revisit chapters again and again— different elements will resonate with you at different times. The more you absorb and practice these elements of The SEWA Project Manage- ment Model, the more you will get out of them.
The SEWA Project Management Model is unique in that it isn’t about outdated theories or philosophical ideas. Instead, it is simply packed with tips, powerful stories, and motivational quotes that I’ve gathered and used in my personal and professional life. They have made a huge difference for me, and they can do the same for you and your team in a sustainable way.
And yes, once you’ve mastered the model, feel free to pass this book on to someone you know who needs it or donate it to the local library. As Homer said, “The charity that seems trifle to us may seem precious to others.”
