"I love that it references the frameworks but faces the reality that projects don't like to obey the rules of any specific framework so even the best PM is going to need to think on their feet"

"This book is more holistic than traditional Project Management Books. It imparts the experience of living through Projects, both good and bad hopefully helping those embarking on the road to avoid the pitfalls."

Céiteach Mac Stiofan

Digital Transformation Project Manager

"This book is a treasure trove of off the shelf tips tools and techniques for each stage of your project to help you deliver. My favourite is the SAVE technique. It combines some amazing design thinking techniques with that great output of execution. James's SAVE workshops are now always my first deliverables on the project plan I also loved the reminder around Dale Carnegie and seeing things from another's point of view."

Roderick O'Gorman

Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth

“A strong, motivated and unified team is essential to delivering change, no matter what the circumstances. In Leading Impactful Teams, James Louttit sets out how to bring people with diverse talents and viewpoints together in an effective way and motivate them to achieve their full potential”.

Gillian Brennan

Business Operations Divisional Manager, Enterprise Ireland

James has compiled a really practical set of techniques and tools which will certainly guide Project Managers to effectively manage projects and achieve project delivery success. Particularly impactful is the focus on people; leading teams and managing stakeholder expectations, through the project lifecycle. This book is written in unambiguous and engaging language, making it accessible and relevant for all levels of project delivery experience.

Alistair Cornish

Founder at Arconomy, former CTO at Sniip

The book eloquently describes how project managers are often in the office jungle trying to navigate ego's and non-productive or non-cooperative behaviour in individuals and teams. James provides a practical and common sense utility belt of exercises to engage and encourage collaboration that can cut through all the dancing around on egg shells and allow people to get out the way of themselves to deliver a result. I also recommend drinking whatever James does in the morrning to give you the energy to succeed!

Andy Kaufman

Project Management & Leadership Keynote Speaker, Author, & Coach, Podcast Host

Leading projects and teams can be rewarding, for sure. But it can undoubtedly be stressful. There are risks. Constraints. And people!

James has crafted a pactical book that helps take some of the stress out of the process. It's an enjoyable read from a guy who knows what he's talking about.

Regardless of your level of project management expertise, you'll pick up ideas to help you lead and deliver. Highly recommended!
