Product description

While formulated with designers in mind, the method elaborated within this book will help industry and academia professionals cycle through potential contexts and project influences in order to determine the impact these may have on both the individual and humanity. Moving through the fundamentals of decision-making and impact-centered thinking, The Impact Plan gives the reader a playful framework for planning and prioritising project-based activities and experiences.

Structured over four main sections which follow ‘The Hero’s Journey’, touching on introducing the journey, explaining adversities, deploying the tool, and reflection, moving through this framework will help drive the user to sharpen the craft of thinking. Balancing multiple contexts and providing room for personalization, this adaptable text will become the reader’s go-to impact-making tool when faced with a pool of different calls and possibilities.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. It is well written with a nice and lively writing style that will appeal to many readers. I also found that the content is sufficiently framed by academic literature, industry directives and policy, yet remains easy to digest. This is a true strength of this book and allows its use inside and outside of academia. I think that postgraduate students will greatly benefit from its reflective approach.

The book was exactly what I expected and more. After reading the book I knew how to create greater impact. I learnt how to anticipate by creating different future scenarios and turn overwhelming ideas into concrete step by step action-plan. Great guide to help for project management like myself or for any working professional.
