    Why is it that my kite won't fly

    Perhaps the best way to express my opinion about this book is to quote one of the closing remarks from the author, "whether you are new to project management or already a season professional, there are challenges ahead which you cannot afford to ignore". "Why is it that my kite won't fly" goes beyond the typical approach of any other book or handbook I have read, or any other consultant or colleague I have heard speaking on how to improve your project execution results. In very simple words, drawing from his personal and professional experiences, and making use of excellent analogies, Roberto transcends from the typical approach of trying to manage time, cost, and scope to control your project, to one that puts the emphasis on people, scope and surrounding conditions to manage and control change, risk and quality, which are in the majority of cases the leading indicators of what is going to be reflected later in your project schedule, cost or scope. The book demonstrates that without a comprehensive approach, or model, that assigns equal or higher priority to the soft skills that are required to manage your project team, the contractors, vendors and many other important stakeholders in the life cycle of a project, your chances of succeeding in project management are almost nil. I highly recommend reading this book! Gustavo Leon, P. Eng. VP - Project Management & Technical Services
