"Kemper mentions the need for compatibility between internal and external project teams. I thought this point was a soft sell until our internal and external teams began working together. The personality conflicts can certainly have a major impact on the process of the project if they (the teams) are not positive and productive. Kemper was right when he said good chemistry between the teams is extremely important. It s this kind of advice that makes Kemper s book invaluable to any healthcare executive who is in the launch stage of a capital project." Lyle E. Sheldon, FACHE, President and CEO, Upper Chesapeake Health
