Human Factors in Project Management: Concepts, Tools, and
Techniques for Inspiring Teamwork and Motivation

Description:    With a background in industry and science and a leader of 250 project teams, Wong attempts to
                provide a summary of "people-based" management concepts and tools for project managers.
                Despite the increased use of team and facilitative methods in project management, there has been
                a gap in understanding how teams can be motivated to high performance--abstract project
                management processess are not enough. Wong focuses on giving team leaders tools for:

                -   Team Development
                -   Facilitation
                -   Aligning Values and Behavior
                -   Managing Conflict
                -   Finding the Team "Sweet Spot"
                -   Understanding the Role of Personality
                -   Motivating the Heart and Mind

                In Human Factors in Project Management, author Zachary Wong—a noted trainer and acclaimed
                leader of more than 250 project teams—provides a summary of “people-based” management skills
                and techniques that can be applied when working in a team environment. This comprehensive
                resource brings together in one book new and current models in team motivation and integrates
                the most significant concepts in team motivation and behaviors into a single set of principles called
                “Human Factors.” Wong shows how these factors can be applied to the most challenging issues
                facing project managers today including:

                -   Motivating a diverse workforce
                -   Facilitating team decisions
                -   Resolving interpersonal conflicts
                -   Managing difficult people
                -   Strengthening team accountability
                -   Communications
                -   Leadership
