Program management (PgM) is fast developing as the essential link between strategy and projects and as a vehicle for organizational change. It offers the means to manage groups of projects with a common business purpose in an integrated and effective way. Based on practical applications of PgM in different countries, as well as the leading standards, "Program Management" reflects the most recent developments in the area. It offers an understanding of program management's connection to business strategy and value realisation, beyond multiple-project management. Additionally it emphasizes the need for program specific processes, based on an iterative life cycle and the management of multiple stakeholders and their expected benefits. The book is grounded in a robust theoretical framework, complemented by a number of case studies. It analyzes the best organizational structures for program management and provides tools and techniques to deal with complex, unplanned change in a structured manner. It also develops knowledge of particular techniques required for managing programs as well as the competencies and skills required from program managers. It features a number of case studies.
"Program Management" was awarded the 2010 Canadian Project Management Book Award of Merit by the Project Management Association of Canada.

Review:

'I would recommend that program managers who want a simple and useful guide to get hold of a copy of the book and keep it handy. Organizations should place a copy of the book in their library along with books on strategy and strategy implementation. For academics teaching a course in program management it would be a good as a textbook or as a reference book from which relevant readings can be suggested to students.' --Associate Professor Shankar Sankaran University of Technology, Sydney for PPPM eJournal

The highlight of the whole book is how it deals with and explains programme governance. What makes this theme throughout the book so refreshing is that it clearly places governance in the context of organisational strategy rather than the normal command and control model that is often assumed to be good governance. In summary, Program Management is a thought-provoking book....it forces the reader to consider programme management as a discipline in its own right. --Reviewed by Ed Burney-Cumming (Project and Programme Delivery Director for Instigate Solutions Ltd) in Project Magazine.
