Constraints are.... Good?

Timeframes. Budgets. Staffing. Project managers constantly face confounding constraints on their journey to deliver a project. Constraints limit our options. They seem to make it more difficult to deliver. And they might be exactly what we need, according to author Scott Sonenshein. Scott is the author of the new book Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less--and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined. Scott relates why being MacGyver-like, adaptable to the constraints we encounter, can help us not only be more successful, but happier as well.
