Why do carefully planned projects fail? Projects are affected, for good or ill, by the humans who undertake them. If the plan fails to take account of the psychology of managing people and the psychology of managing change, there may be trouble ahead.

Sharon De Mascia's Project Psychology uses human behavior and emerging psychological models to provide an insight into the successful management of people in projects. By selecting the right team, facilitating a common vision and gaining a psychological understanding of how the team and the project stakeholders interact together, a project manager improves the chance of a successful outcome.

Whether you are looking to set up and manage a new project or are working to develop the competence and maturity of your organization's project management capability, Project Psychology will provide you with insights and tools for making sense of the people involved and for managing them to best effect.
