Business Driven Project Portfolio Management seeks to fill this void in the current literature by offering insights, techniques, and examples to ensure a successful and business-driven project portfolio management (PPM) organization. It boldly challenges some of the traditional project management thinking and institutions. It introduces and positions in a PPM context some of the leading thinking about management systems and the emergence of complex adaptive systems as an alternative to plan-driven scientific management which lies at the heart of the project management community vs. agile community hostilities. And in addition to a presentment of the top ten risks that threaten PPM success, this book features the thought, market, and product leadership of the leading providers of project portfolio management solutions by way of end of chapter Showcase pieces.
Most PMO books are written by academics, trainers and consultants from the PM community and present academic or theoretical approaches and models that too often fail. The more sophisticated books tend to be limited in application to the larger or more advanced project management organizations. This unique reference presents new material not available in other books that is applicable to PMOs of all shapes and sizes. It challenges and calls into question various traditional approaches and strategies for the PMO citing examples and explaining when and why such academic and theoretical approaches are wrong.
