From the Author
The Power of Enterprise Project Management serves as a straightforward guide to establishing project business management (PBM) as an integrative business function for forward thinking companies. The PBM methodology model developed in the book provides enterprises with a simple easy to follow top-down hierarchically integrated blend of strategic, tactical, portfolio, program, and project planning and execution processes.
This book is structured to provide the key elements (Governance, Standardization, Capability, Execution, and Maturity) needed to understand and implement the concepts of PBM and the Enterprise-wide Project Management Office (EPMO), which are graphically, captured in what the authors call the Enterprise-wide Project Management House of Excellence. The sections of the book, and their respective chapters, are written to expand your understanding of each of these business areas. The Appendices also contain valuable tools, forms, templates and surveys to support you in developing a PBM methodology and establishing an EPMO. Numerous graphics and visuals throughout the book help the reader (and implementer) understand critical concepts, roles and responsibilities, and business linkages.
