  1. 1.The Checklist Manifesto. I loved this book, written by Atul Gawande. Surprisingly, it’s about improving surgery survival rates, and doesn’t even mention project management. If I’d read it before completing my book, I would have enhanced my treatment of checklists . . .

  2. 2.Flawless Execution. Having once been a pilot (maybe why I like checklists), I totally get the fighter pilot analogy to business developed by author Jim Murphy, though it won’t appeal to all. The message for project teams is the Plan-Brief-Execute-Debrief-Win cycle. The development of the debrief process, elaborated in a subsequent book, ‘The Debrief Imperative’, may provide a broader and more implementable version of lessons-learned many of us find so hard to do.

  3. 3.Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking.   In TCPM, the final chapter, I speculate on personality types best suited to manage a project. I have been “typed” five or six times in my career - an essential process for self-knowledge and team adaptation. Susan Cain presents some fascinating research on the utility, indeed the necessity, to resurrect a respect for introversion and I think there is a strong message here for team building and project management skill assessment.
