Testimonials about The Handbook of Program Management

"Brown's book captures the essential skills of program and project management. It serves as a "how to" guide for those entering the business, as well as a refresher on the skills and attributes for those ready to take the next step. The book effectively defines the leader's role in creating the team culture and environment for success". - Eugene F. Kranz, Apollo 13 Flight Director, Retired Director NASA Space Operations, Author of Failure is not an Option

"Program management is one of the toughest jobs a person can hold ... and James Brown knows Program Management. Here's a chance to learn from the scar tissue of others rather than your own." - Norman R. Augustine, Retired Chairman and CEO, Lockheed Martin Corporation
