The 4 central themes of the book


Doing more with less. Monitoring things closely while also giving the team sufficient autonomy. Recognizing uncertainty and making a commitment.

The growing demand for and-and-and turns a project manager’s life on its head.
Breaking through the &-&-& paradox requires expertise, leadership and creativity.

The TomTom

The TomTom GPS navigation system teaches us about Agile Leadership. This makes us goal-oriented, flexible and helps us to act as proactive influencers.

The TomTom is always looking for the optimal path to the goal and communicates the consequences to the client. Keep taking action as long as the goal has not yet been reached, especially when things are not going your way!

The heartbeat

Rhythm leads to progress without coercion for self-organizing teams and professionals. Without heartbeat no PDCA-cycle and learning ability.

You can compare your project to a ten-kilometer ice skating race. This race is actually 25 laps of 400 meters.

If you meet your (weekly) “lap times”, you know your project is on schedule!

The Blind check

Checking off tasks is rewarded with a shot of dopamine that makes you want it again and again. However, beware of the blind check!

The blind check gives an illusion of progress and leads to unexpected corrections later on. 

A task is only done when it brings you closer to the final goal!
