We selected the book that will be the focus/catalyst of the online leadership discussion we will be organizing and facilitating: Getting Things Done When You Are Not In Charge by Geoffrey Bellman (San Francisco : Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2001).  The book is divided into five chapters and we plan to have the discussion last five weeks, one week for each major topic or theme in the book, beginning in early October and finishing in early November before the Thanksgiving holiday.


We will be publicizing the online discussion ahead of time in Footnotes, on NMRT-L, and possibly on the NMRT web page to try to get as many NMRT members as possible involved in this discussion.
