The discipline of project risk management is continually evolving and has matured over time. However within the literature there has been a disproportionate focus on process, techniques and statistical analysis at the expense of understanding how effective risk management is delivered. The Rules of Project Risk Management provides readers with practical insights in the form of guidelines or ‘rules’ to enhance effective delivery of a discipline which has been proven to directly contribute to securing a project’s objectives. A series of mini case studies are included to improve comprehension of the guidelines. The structure of the book has been designed to enable project and risk personnel and students alike to quickly appreciate and assimilate those aspects of risk management that warrant close scrutiny and comprehension. Robert Chapman’s advice is given with clarity and is based on very broad experience.

Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

This unique reference shows how to lead knowledge workers, manage knowledge work and build a hyper-productive knowledge work organization, by taming and managing the four flows of organizational performance (psychology, information, work and finance) to produce spectacular operational and financial throughput results.

Inspired by his experience and knowledge gained at Borland International, where a hyper-productive level of performance was achieved resulting in the most productive software project ever documented, author Steve Tendon devised TameFlow. TameFlow is an approach that can be superimposed on any preexisting process, method, and practice to enable performance improvement by several orders of magnitude and a state of hyper-productivity. It is adaptable to nearly every industry, and can be applied to any knowledge work domain or organization that generates business value through knowledge.

TameFlow blends and merges different ideas from a variety of schools of thought. It is founded in pattern theory and organizational performance patterns which are used to analyze and decompose processes, methodologies, and management practices into constituent parts to observe productivity patterns, and then they are recombined in new configurations to enable hyper-productive levels of performance.

In this volume of The TameFlow Hyper-Productivity Series, the TameFlow approach is explained within the context of knowledge work performed in a software development organization. Mr. Tendon teams up with author, Wolfram Müller, a thought-leader and expert in Critical Chain and Advanced Agile Project Management to illustrate its application to Scrum, the most widely used Agile software project management framework, and to Kanban, a method used for knowledge work with an emphasis on just-in-time delivery and change management.

Author:Robert Wysocki
Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

With technology continuing to invade the business world and the convergence of complexity, uncertainty, and constant change, a whole new class of projects has emerged for which traditional project management models such as Waterfall are totally insufficient. These are called complex projects. Extreme Project Management models and a variety of Agile Project Management models such as Scrum, Rational Unified Process, Feature-Driven Development, and Dynamic Systems Development Method have emerged, but project failure rates have not been measurably reduced.

Effective Complex Project Management offers a proven solution to managing any project that must succeed in the face of organizational complexity and market uncertainty, in the form of an adaptive complex project framework. Developed, refined, and validated through 20+ years of client experiences and feedback from project management thought leaders, this framework and robust methodology has demonstrated a favorable impact on project and program management success rates.

Dr. Wysocki demonstrates that for program and project managers to be consistently successful in managing complex projects, they need to include in their project management portfolio of processes an adaptive framework that continuously analyzes and adapts to changing and modifying conditions even to the point of changing project management models mid-project. The author’s adaptive complex project framework is currently the only robust tool to offer an orderly approach to do just that. When applied and managed correctly, this intuitive framework that proceeds from ideation to set-up to execution has proven to deliver on the purpose of programs and projects without fail, in the form of desired business value.

Omar Zein's Culture and Project Management explores the cultural impact on projects and their management, providing the reader with an understanding of the main elements of cross-cultural theory within the project environment. These include our perception of context, achievement, power and group dynamics; and how we approach ambiguity and time. He then identifies key aspects of project management where cultural sensitivity is essential (for example, planning, risk management, project communication and leadership) and offers a structured plan for developing what he calls 'cultural tuning' within a project environment.

The book draws on the author’s research and his professional practice experience of working on transnational projects. His review of the different theories alongside examples and stories of their practical application, offers project managers a new and extraordinarily rich perspective into the likely dynamics of their projects. Making appropriate adaptations to standard processes, choosing what, how and through whom you communicate with stakeholders may be signal elements in the success or failure of your projects; Culture and Project Management will show where to start.

Author:John Brinkworth
Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Bridging the Business-Project Divide is a wonderfully pragmatic book which understands that one of the most natural ways to connect projects and business-as-usual activities is by identifying the needs of both, where these diverge and, most importantly, how to bring them together. Unfortunately, the natural side-effect of two so different perspectives is misunderstanding, mutual incomprehension, and despite good intentions on both sides, failure to deliver to mutual benefit.

John Brinkworth tackles the subject by examining the symptoms - how do we know there is a problem, and how is it manifested?; the causes - a deeper analysis going behind the symptoms to consider the root causes; and the solutions - addressing the root causes and how this could lead to more successful projects.

Project success rates haven't changed in 20 years!

Learn why, and what you can do to improve them in your organization.

Today, less than a third of projects deliver their specified business benefits on time and within budget. Nearly 20% of all projects fail outright, and under-delivery of benefits on the average project is as high as 50%. Acutely aware of this and without understanding the root causes of the problem, organizations are busy advancing capabilities and investing in methodologies and processes that increase complexity, but just deliver more failure.

Using examples and lessons learned from high-risk environments where the price of project failure is death, this innovative and captivating guide provides powerful insights into the root causes of project failure and how to manage them. The author examines the failures and achievements of the Antarctic explorers Scott and Shackleton, Mount Everest expedition leader John Hunt, and modern-day Everest climbers, and expertly connects these to the high-risk world of modern day project and program management.

Written from a base of in-depth project management knowledge and experience, this essential reference for business leaders, portfolio owners, project and program managers, business analysts, and risk managers, explores the drivers of risk in projects, the relationship between our ambitions and our abilities, and provides pragmatic real-world solutions to this constancy of project failure that readers can apply directly to their organization.

Author:Adrian Taggart
Description:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Project Management for Supplier Organizations offers an explanation of the key processes from the perspective of the project contractor. Adrian tackles key issues such as: how a well thought-out procurement process seeks to maximise those interests that client and supplier have in common and diminish the consequences of those that are not; the commercial and practical importance of managing change; the risks that face supplier organizations when addressing project related work; the implications for other organizational disciplines of the Supplier when embracing project work and areas of additional expertise that may be required.

Adrian Taggart’s book turns the stakeholder perspective on its head. In doing so, he offers readers, from contract organizations, a real story and urgent set of priorities when it comes to managing a project and, those from client organizations, with an understanding of how best they can work with their suppliers to mutual benefit.
