Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The revised edition of a classic text on getting things done when you are not in charge

In organizations today, getting work done requires political and collaborative skills. That’s why the first edition of this book sold over 70,000 copies and has been widely adopted as a guide for consultants, project leaders, staff experts, and anyone else who does not have direct authority but who is nevertheless accountable for results. In this revised edition, leadership gurus Allan Cohen and David Bradford explain how to get cooperation from business partners, managers, colleagues, clients, or groups who command the resources, information, or potential support you need. They discuss how to negotiate mutually beneficial exchanges–how to think in terms of the interests of potential partners and how to determine the "currencies" you can trade with them. This classic work, now revised and updated, gives you powerful techniques for cutting through interpersonal and interdepartmental barriers, and motivating people to lend you their support, time, and resources.
