Book Club (North)

There are many ways to improve your professional knowledge and skills. One way is to increase your knowledge is by reading current and relevant project management books. We've created book clubs that are designed to be small discussion groups led by a facilitator.
It's an informal group meeting for a Saturday morning breakfast and discussion. One person serves as facilitator to guide and promote discussion. It is an excellent way to meet other chapter members and open a dialogue regarding trends and challenges experienced by those in project management roles. 

Current book: 

The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else In Business by Patrick M. Lencioni


There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No, the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are. 
Simply put, an organization is healthy when it is whole, consistent and complete and when its management, operations and culture are unified.  Healthy organizations outperform their counterparts, are free of politics and confusion and provide an environment where star performers never want to leave. In this age of informational ubiquity and nano-second change, it's no longer enough to build a competitive advantage based on intelligence alone. The Advantage provides a foundational construct for conducting business in a new way—one that maximizes human potential and aligns the organization around a common set of principles.
