„... Overall, I would consider Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change essential reading for anyone aspiring to work or currently working in business: an excellent collection of well-considered thoughts.“
"Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change is a work of non-fiction in the business and project management sub-genres, and it was edited by author and Dr. Tobias Endress. It contains the work of thirteen experts, including Aditya Chandak, Dr. Majid Dadgar, Ralf Dick, Elena Dinman, and Günter Jeschke, to name but a few. Focusing specifically on business practices and current methods, the book explores best practices which really do work and are considered as standard, but also new ideas that provide forward-thinking progress and dynamic growth, as well as equipping business practitioners at all levels with the tools to use them in their own daily lives.

Editor Dr. Tobias Endress brings together an excellent body of work in this insightful and invaluable guide to critical thinking around business practices. One of the things that readers will find most useful about the work is the fact that any level of professional can access it, whether it be to check their progress against expert opinion or to learn what the pros and cons of different approaches are before making the leap themselves. Although each author writes in a very different style, the work is edited to a high standard to ensure clarity and accessibility for all, and the topics are well organized to offer fresh perspectives and not repeat similar ideas too near to one another. Overall, I would consider Digital Project Practice: Managing Innovation and Change essential reading for anyone aspiring to work or currently working in business: an excellent collection of well-considered thoughts."

The management of digital projects is an activity that requires a high level of professionalism and knowledge of appropriate tools and techniques. Decision-makers and practitioners should be well educated and always informed about new business ideas and have the latest methods in their ‘bag of tricks.’ Still, you might think that there are already many books and courses that aim to address this need. Why read another book in this domain?

We started this book project because we felt that many books about digital innovation and project management are either very theory-heavy, outdated, or just want to ‘sell’ a particular method. We wanted to prepare a book that introduces the methods, but also covers the practical aspect, critically acclaims existing approaches and practices, and shows the limitations. I.e., the book touches appropriate methods as well as human/social aspects. In fact, the human aspect is one of the running themes in this book. It also addresses issues that may not be covered by ‘classical or agile project management literature’. You can regard it as a contribution to the ongoing discussion on business practices and methods. It also aims to nourish and stimulate dialogue in the professional community.
