Exercising Agency

Exercising Agency - Cover 346

Exercising Agency is a book about decision making. In particular, it looks in detail at how a very important type of organizational decision gets made: whether or not to initiate a project. Exercising Agency lifts the lid on many of the important behavioural factors that inform project decisions: power, politics, process, personality and the ‘rules’ of an organization.

If you are involved in framing or making decisions about the future of your organization; the projects that you do or don’t decide to initiate, then read this book. It won’t make the decisions any easier but it will help you improve the quality of the decisions you make and over time, the effectiveness of your organizational decision making.

“This book should be on the must-read list of every academic and reflective practitioner engaged in project organising work. Its emphasis is on how agency and rules influence decision making, at the project initiation stage, significantly shaping project delivery success or failure.”

— Derek H.T. Walker, RMIT University, Australia
