The author uses a current-day project leader to show how to motivate and get positive results from a project team where some of the members don't report to him or even work at the same location.

The 149-page book can easily be read in one evening. It uses colorful analogies from King Arthur, which make the process easy to remember and follow. It has been used as a "cookbook" for program and project managers. The book addresses many of the issues, which prevent virtual -- geographically disbursed -- teams from becoming high performance project teams.

I used the process described in this book to bring my $140M Mega Center project in on time, (less than 12 months) and on budget with team members spread over 14 states.
