About this book


This book builds a bridge between facilitation techniques and leadership in project and network management. It provides methodical Messages, a Facilitator Curriculum, and the wealth of 40 carefully selected and reality-proof Tools, many of which have not been published at all or at least never been published in English. The reader will benefit as much from learning by doing as from doing by learning; this book is for managers who in some way are responsible for successful co-operation in projects in and across organisations or networks of organisations, and who want to know and share better what they are going to do and to do better what they have planned to do together. It is a practical book, although it is based on scientific principles, and it draws on the authors` experience in consultancy and management.
