Description - The Blind Men and The Elephant - Mastering Project Work by David A. Schmaltz

This work shows how anyone can gain power over their ambiguous, so-called "wicked" project assignments. Using "The Blind Men and the Elephant" as a metaphor for project work, it explain how a "Follow the Leader" orientation creates wicked projects by focusing attention away from the individual. Using real-world stories, it undermines the excuses that keep people trapped in meaningless work, and creates a practical means for anyone to overcome the inevitable difficulties of real work.
