Gareis R., Gareis L., 1st edition (English), 2018

14 years after the best selling publication “Happy Projects!” Roland Gareis partnered with his son Lorenz Gareis to publish the demanded successor “PROJECT.PROGRAM.CHANGE”. It is intended as a handbook for „intrapreneurs“ of project-oriented organizations, i.e. for project managers, program managers, change managers and the owners of projects, programs and changes. On the other hand, it is also a textbook for management trainers and consultants, for researchers and teachers in universities and universities of applied sciences as well as for students.
