Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Much of the work performed in organizations around the world today is project oriented. Those responsible for leading the majority of these projects to successful results have varied educational backgrounds, knowledge, skill sets, and experiences gained over the course of their lives and careers that do not include the professional discipline known as project management. Most are managing projects as part of their role, not their profession. However, these accidental project managers frequently run into the same sort of issues and problems faced by those whose profession is project management, but they lack the education or training to properly address them. As a result, more projects run by accidental project managers fail than succeed.

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:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Many organisations have struggled to apply the traditional models of project management to their new projects in the global environment. Indeed, projects continue to fail at an alarming rate. A major part of the build-up to failure is often the lack of adequate project management knowledge and experience. Advances in Project Management covers key areas of improvement in understanding and project capability further up the management chain; amongst strategy and senior decision makers and amongst professional project and programme managers. This collection, drawn from some of the world’s leading practitioners and researchers and compiled by Professor Darren Dalcher of the National Centre for Project Management, provides those people and organizations who are involved with the developments in project management with the kind of structured information and new approaches that will inform their thinking and their practice and improve their decisions.

Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Every year technology projects face hard decisions about how to mitigate risk and address challenges as teams work on creating useful solutions to deliver promised business value. Those decisions impact scope at every step and help to evolve it until the final product is delivered and implemented. Scope can longer be set in stone!

This book will help project teams understand how and when scope changes and evolves as a part of a living-development process by answering the ultimate question: “Are we doing the right things the right way?”

Going Beyond the Waterfall explains how to define scope at the outset of a project. It provides a solid model for predicting and managing solution scope across a project life cycle where the decisions and actions of every team member contribute to that evolutionary process. In addition, it identifies the impacts that key tasks and activities will have on scope and how each can be managed effectively to prevent unnecessary scope creep and reduce run-away projects.

Author:Ralf Müller, DBA, MBA, PMP; Jingting Shao, PhD, MSc; Sofia Pemsel, PhD, MSc
Description:While corporate culture plays a significant role in the success of any corporation, governance and “governmentality” not only determine how business should be conducted, but also define the policies and procedures organizations follow to achieve business functions and goals. In their book, Organizational Enablers for Project Governance, Ralf Müller, Jingting Shao, and Sofia Pemsel examine the interaction of governance and governmentality in various types of companies and demonstrate how these factors drive business success and influence project work, efficiency, and profitability.

The data for the studies was collected through interviews with six companies in Sweden and China and a global web-based questionnaire that garnered 208 responses. Using this data the authors conducted four studies, employing various research methodologies, to investigate the different systems of governance and their relationships to organizational success. Based on these results, the authors discovered that organizational enablers (including key factors such as leadership, governance, and influence of project managers) have a critical impact on how organizations operate, adapt to market fluctuations and forces, and make essential changes over time.

This must-read book is a practical guide for executives and project managers alike. The insights and industry examples provided can be applied to any project-based organization.
