There are deadlines and goals to meet, bottom lines to achieve and they need to take priority.

As early as Hippocrates we find him proposing a model of 4 temperaments based on dominance of particular body fluids for each person. These were: Sanguine (blood) - happy Melancholic (black bile) - sad Choleric (yellow bile) - irritable Phlegmatic (phlegm) - calm Over the centuries some of these terms have been used as ways of describing people albeit without much scientific evidence for the link to body fluids!

These processes exist inside departments and companies that are managed and led by people. Do you detect an emerging theme here? Understanding the people dynamics - often referred to as the soft skills - of Improvement Projects can often be a challenge but is a vital component of project success.
