JFDI - the art of Management, Leadership and Communication

Application of simple action-first based tactics and strategies to lead and manage your team to JFDI

About the Book

A simple guide to help managers  and team members alike avoid the simple traps which can produce poorly organised and performing teams, projects and missions.

How to communicate, how to structure, how to organise and lead a team to achieve the desired goals. 

Description of current tool sets to assist and organise loosely coupled teams with similar intentions.

All content here is taken from personal experience of civilians in commercial and government business and military personel on deployment across the globe.

This work will be constantly evolving; you can't write a paper on JFDI and not publish. As a result there will be ongoing updates to this work.

About the Author

Having worked in several countries with teams varying in both size and ability across a variety of industries, I've witnessed both great and appalling acts of management leadership and communication.  

Listening, collecting and documenting the pearls of wisdom along with the tarpits, I constructed a valuable list of rules which i've expanded greatly upon to create the JFDI Management-Festo.

Hope you enjoy the read.
