Author:Guilherme Biesek, Nuno Gil, PhD
Description:How do project teams overcome differences to adopt a design plan that strikes a balance between short-term affordability and long-term adaptability? In the book, Building Options at Project Front-End Strategizing: The Power of Capital Design for Evolvability, Guilherme Biesek and Nuno Gil cite research indicating the need for a formal framework to develop front-end strategies that ensure cost-effective management of the project through future change.

Biesek and Gil found limitations in the current practices and theory for management of capital projects, and turned to real options reasoning and design literature. Project teams often resort to real options reasoning, because investment in design flexibility is similar to buying options.
If future changes are minimal or favorable the options can be exercised to adapt the design economically. In the event the future is not favorable to the project, a limited investment has been lost.

Description:
While organizational change is often recognized as a distinct type of project or program, most projects require some degree of organizational and behavioral change. The degree of change will most likely be higher in projects and programs designed to achieve organizational change. Yet, projects designed for other outcomes often require structural change in order to achieve the desired result. Based on the results of a quantitative research study, this book demonstrates that project and program management professionals appear to be embracing change implementation practices, even when change processes are not included in project performance goals and objectives.

Description:
Many government projects and programs are prolonged for years, failing to meet the projects’ objectives, wasting taxpayers’ money, or they are abruptly terminated in the midst of planning or implementation.

Government funded projects and programs set out to achieve national growth and enhance the lives of citizens. They are ubiquitous—and notoriously unwieldy.

Drawing on an impressive array of large-scale government projects gleaned from government audit reports across three major sectors—infrastructure and transportation, information systems, and defense—this study explains why government projects go wrong and what can be done to improve their success rates.

Description:
The routes project managers have taken to their careers vary as much as their backgrounds and experiences, which is to say that their paths resemble a collection of unchartered roads rather than a freeway.

The track to a career in project management is seldom a direct one. The question of what project managers learn and how this learning takes place therefore becomes central to documenting the development paths of project managers and taking the next steps toward professionalization of the field.

Description:Recent research has shown that organizations continue to experience project issues associated with the poor performance of requirements-related activities—a core task for the practice of business analysis. In fact, poor requirements practices are often cited as a leading cause of project failure in PMI’s Pulse of the Profession™ surveys.

Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide provides practical resources to tackle the project-related issues associated with requirements and business analysis—and addresses a critical need in the industry for more guidance in this area.
