What is it?
The book provides 25 powerful thinking tools for visually designing new projects. But "Project Design" is more than a tool book. It’s a book about people in projects – how to effectively collaborate and have more fun at work.
Project DESIGN is the second book of the “Over the Fence” book project. Founded in 2013, “Over the Fence” is an open-source initiative for people in projects. We are inspired by cross-disciplinary knowledge and a whole lot of common sense. The motto is “simple but powerful – demystified and buzzword-free”. The authors publish ebooks and step by step so that they are are able to learn and adapt to your needs.
This hardcover book exists only because the readers of the ebook told the authors again and again: "This needs to be printed on paper!” And it’s really handy in workshops. Please feel invited to tell us, whether the content was helpful, how we could become better, and what you would like to see in the upcoming releases.
