This thought-provoking and inspirational book covers such topics as: developing a solid creative process through “Visual Reflection Notebooks” and “Bring Play to Work”; understanding the artist’s unique identity in relation to the larger culture; building systems of support and collaboration; explaining how an artist’s needs and passions can lead to innovation and authenticity; using language to inspire visual creativity; responding to the Internet and changing concepts of what is public and private; and accepting digression as a creative necessity. Through the exercises and techniques outlined in Art Without Compromise*, the reader will develop new confidence to pursue individual goals and inspiration to explore new paths, along with motivation to overcome creative blocks. With a revised understanding of the relevance in their own work within the sphere of contemporary culture, the artist will come away with a clearer perspective on his or her past and future work and a critical eye for personal authenticity.

A transformative framework to bring the PMO into the future The DNA of Strategy Execution provides clear guidance and a practical framework for moving forward amidst the dynamic changes in today's business environment. The PMO walks a tightrope between creativity and structure, between innovation and bureaucracy; demands for formal structures and discipline counter the need to be responsive and adaptive. This book provides a fresh perspective, with a real-world blueprint for the modern PMO. Through a set of practical tools, best practices, and a series of short supporting case studies from different industries, you'll discover how to strike the critical balance, prove value, and reconcile divergent needs into a more agile next generation PMO. The Project Management Office is a common fixture that is facing new challenges--many of which appear diametrically opposed. But today's turbulent and disruptive business environment demands a solution, and this insightful guide shines a light on the path forward. Build adaptive capabilities to thrive in uncertain environments Maintain creativity and innovation while building responsiveness Prove value amidst a perception of overhead and bureaucracy Maintain relevancy with a fresh perspective and transformative framework Today's environment is tough; stakeholders are no longer satisfied with on-scope, on-time, and on-budget delivery, and the PMO is under pressure to show their worth in the era of cost-cutting. It's up to the PMO itself to navigate these rapids without overturning the boat, and natural evolution is no longer enough; today's environment calls for a complete transformation to bring the PMO into the future. The DNA of Strategy Execution provides the plan, and the tools to bring it to life.
