Are the project managers in your organization scrambling for people, time, and funding? Are they wasting effort on overlapping projects — or the wrong projects altogether? Maybe your organization is plagued by cost overruns, delays, and cancellations? Program Management Office (PMO) is the newest solution to the challenge of how to effectively manage complex, concurrent projects.
As a single office responsible for overseeing all of an organization’s projects, PMO goes well beyond the traditional scope of project management, adding a new level of efficiency, accountability, and strategic oversight. Now you can put the enormous benefits of PMO to work in your organization with the strategies and tools in The Program Management Office Advantage. This all-in-one resource helps you:
From quickly getting projects off the ground to consistently measuring results to successfully leading the department, The Program Management Office Advantage gives you the latest, most effective PMO strategies and tools — in an easy-to-understand format that lets you put the information to work immediately.
This is one of these books, who looks good when you read the back of it, the TOC seems interesting, but when you start reading it, you suddenly realize there is no content whatsoever! When you then check the references, you find little relevance to the topics. And then you start to understand that this is more of an intellectual exercise, as no practical examples or case studies are given and the samples are simplistic to the moronic level.
I want my hour back (the time it took to read this sad excuse to bullshit)!
Don't even get near this book, if you have any experience whatsoever or any functional braincells.
