d laugh in the process.As the latest management vogue phrase puts it, a project under way is “in flight”. So when you have to explain the mission to senior managers in very small words, you “dim the lights for take-off”. And at some point you’ll have “an Icarus moment”, which will leave you “putting plasters on the Greek guy”.Caveat: Take Flight uses normal, day-to-day language in all its earthy ripeness. If that’s too rich for your work environment, don’t read it aloud.In flight explains how illness, cult religion and Old Norse can help you avoid those long, tedious days and weekends away from the family. Plus it suggests a novel use for an old engine block.Who should read this? If you’re in danger of conscription, In Flight prepares you for the worst. If you’re a project manager, it tips you off to some of the bizarre excuses you’re going to hear. And if you work in Personnel, you’ll hate it. Like we care.Bosses say your involvement will boost your career. They lie. Most projects fail and your name is going to be in lights. Big, bright ones. If Take Flight can’t help you evade the press-gang, it will at least give you something to laugh at.You’ll need it. Projects cause untold stress at work for little or no personal benefit. Too many are vanity exercises with impossible deadlines and insane workloads. Most projects are lowered into the soil with a litany of missed aims, quietly-sidelined objectives, traduced promises, squandered money, burned careers and personal lives ruined.This self-help guide is an antidote to the usual business literature. It’s a must for anyone who works for an organisation. Read it. Enjoy it. Laugh. Spread the wisdom.
