The One-Page Project Manager for Execution. Drive Strategy and Solve Problems with a Single Sheet of Paper

Drive Strategy With Simplicity–On A Single Sheet Of Paper! The One-Page Project Manager set a new standard as an understandable and easy-to-apply organizational tool, allowing managers to summarize complex projects on a single information-rich page. This book, third in the OPPM series, describes how to combine the OPPM with the Toyota A3 report to create an enhanced, integrated management tool. With a refreshingly clear style, the authors walk users through implementing the OPPM/A3 using a variety of real-world case studies, as well as their own experience at O.C. Tanner Company. Rich with tools, templates, and teaching,the emphasis throughout remains on maintaining simplicity across the organization—communicating the right information to the right people at the right time to get the right things done. Praise for The One-Page Project Manager «Executives want the answers to two questions: Where are we today? Where will we end up? Do you really believe this cannot be accomplished on a single sheet of paper? The One-Page Project Manager series of books is encouraging you to do just that. Making this part of your Project Management methodology will simplify and improve your project communication, especially for busy executives.» —Harold D. Kerzner, PhD, Senior Executive Director, International Institute for Learning, Inc. «Clark Campbell fills a void and bridges a communication gap that has long existed between company executives and project or program managers. OPPM successfully links corporate strategy to those in the trenches managing projects.» —Dr. Denis R. Petersen, PMP®, President and CEO, Milestone Management Consultants, LLC «Clark Campbell and Mike Collins present how OPPM works to drive strategy deployment. With OPPM in our lean tool kit, we have tapped into the creativity of our people to pump up productivity, cut cycle times, reduce inventories, and sustain world-class quality.» —Harold Simons, Executive Vice President, Supply Chain, O.C.

Mike Collins is a Wales-based comic book artist and writer and has been working in comics since the mid-1980s.


Born in West Bromwich in 1961, he moved to Wales in 1985 after an abortive stab at a career in the Law, in London. Despite his training as a barrister, Mike decided that he enjoyed the fiction-based life of comic book characters over the fiction-based statements of clients. He is married to Karen Collins and father of 3 daughters, Bethan, Rebecca and Rhiannon and is currently placed in Cardiff.

UK comics

In the mid to late 1980s, Mike wrote and drew strips for Marvel Comics United Kingdom division, amongst them; "Spider-Man", "Transformers", "Doctor Who", and "Zoids". He also worked on the celebrated UK weekly comic "2000 AD" drawing "Judge Dredd", "Sláine" and "Rogue Trooper", as well as writing various "Future Shocks".

US comics

He was hired in the 'Second Wave' of British artists lured to the United States in the late 1980s. Through the 1990s he worked primarily for DC Comics on their key titles - "Batman", "Superman", "Flash", "Teen Titans", "Wonder Woman" and the "Justice League".

He also drew a series of licenced comics for the company, using various TSR/Dungeons and Dragons characters. A brief spell at Marvel saw Mike working on "Uncanny X-Men" (Key issue: #266, the first appearance of Gambit). He was back to DC though, to write and draw "Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt", a revival of a 1960s Charlton Comics character.

Mike's primarily known for his work on TV and Movie tie-in comics- for both Marvel and DC he has written and drawn "Star Trek" comics. In the late 90s he drew a "Babylon 5" mini-series, "In Valen's Name", written by series creator J. Michael Straczynski and Peter David. A departure from most tie-in productions in that it actually serves as series 'canon' being based on an unused 3rd season script.

Current work

Currently the artist (and sometime writer) on Panini Comics "Doctor Who Magazine", Mike also writes and draws a strip for "Weekly World News", as well as co-creating the series "American Gothic" with Ian Edginton for "2000 AD".

Outside of comics Mike paints covers to a monthly series of downloadable Star Trek novels - the "Starfleet Corps of Engineers", and works as a storyboard artist for both animation and live-action TV and movies.

Major work at the moment is a 135 page adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' for Classical Comics, due out October 2008. His regular 'Doctor Who' collaborators, inker David Roach and colour artist James Offredi, are working with him on the book, alongside writer Sean M. Wilson.

Unusual and unique work

He wrote and designed the first ever Welsh language graphic novel - Mabinogi in association with Cartwyn Cymru in 2001, and is the first UK artist to produce a series of graphic novels for Norway with Gunnar Staalesen, featuring his celebrated private eye, Varg Veum.

He works a key illustrator for Welsh language school books using the comic strip medium, aimed at reluctant learners.

He supplied art for a number of cards in the Harry Potter Trading Card Game.

Film and TV

As well as comics work, Mike is a storyboard artist for Calon and Dinamo on children's TV shows, primarily the BAFTA winning Hana's Helpline and Cwm Teg. He has also worked on short live action movies, one of which -Day At The Beach- was BAFTA nominated in 2004.


When not working in comics, Mike fronts a tribute band: TomWaits4NoMan.
