Professor Eddie Obeng’s book, ‘All Change!’ has had a big influence on many Project managers – including me! He’s an inspiring educator and an innovative thinker. Stand by to be astonished by some of his insights.
Eddie tells me about:

- The ugly baby
- Vamprojects and Poltergeist Projects
- What happened with ‘agile’…
- ‘Smart Failure’
- The need for ‘prelimination’
