The Lazy Project Manager

The Lazy Project Manager

Every once in awhile you stumble across someone who’s done so fabulously well for themselves you want to reach out and heap your congratulations on them, hoping some of their awesomeness will rub off on you by osmosis.

Such is the case with Mr. Peter Taylor, the Lazy Project Manager.

About a year ago, Mr. Taylor introduced himself to me, and I’ve been quietly following him online watching his progress ever since. Last week, at the PM Telesummit, I got to hear him speak, and what he had to say about the art of productive laziness was inspiring. He’s an extremely dynamic speaker, and his writing is no less engaging. Well, he just sent me a note that his book, “The Lazy Project Manager: How to be twice as productive and still leave the office early” has hit the #1 spot on the Kindle in the UK, is #3 in the PM book charts, and the 120th best selling book of all books on Kindle in the USA. This is according to Amazon charts.

Dude. I need some of that awesome.

So this is a note to congratulate Mr. Taylor and to let folks know a) if you haven’t bought and read his book, you should do so immediately, and b) I will attempt to lure some of Mr. Taylor’s awesome powers over to this blog by begging him for a guest post (*cough* beg *cough*).

Well done, my friend! I wish you continued incredible success! *big hairy hugz*

I’m a professor of project management at the college where I work. My students continually amaze me with their insights, passion and all-around awesomeness. I figure they deserve access to more answers than I can give them by myself. This site is for them.

  • Peter Taylor’s bestseller, The Lazy Project Manager, has been a project management phenomenon since it was published in 2009.
    In it he shows how adopting a more focused approach to life, projects and work can make you twice as productive. The Lazy Project Manager and its sequel, The Lazy Winner, show how anyone can apply the simple techniques of lazy project management in their own lives in order to work and live more effectively.
    Now, in The Lazy Project Manager and the Project from Hell, Peter Taylor applies the lazy project management technique to a project that has gone seriously wrong.
    Back in the comfy chair for more productive lazy wisdom and then off to the time machine to save the worst project in history – and all before tea time.
