Enterprise-wide project portfolio management and strategic planning - your best weapon for success. Key Feature includes the new Theory of Constraints 4x4 method of strategic planning and the Critical Chain Multi-Project Management approach.
Advanced Project Portfolio Management and the PMO is the most comprehensive book currently published on the topic of Project/Program Management Office (PMO) and sets a new standard for PMO development.
The authors, Gerald Kendall and Steve Rollins, show you how to turn your PMO into a value machine. Describing the missing link between executive strategy and project management, the book provides a detailed implementation plan for both strategic planning and a PMO that gives you measurable results in weeks, without false starts and missteps. It outlines a road map to unprecedented project management improvement. The authors delineate four processes that get a PMO off the ground much faster, driving bottom-line value almost immediately.
