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.

Author:Lynn Crawford, DBA; Alicia Aitken, PhD and Anat Hassner-Ahmias, PhD
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:CLEARANCE ITEM. LIMITED QUANTITIES

Historically, project managers are not known as a creative breed. PMs are the people you call when something needs to get done, or when current chaos needs to be mud-wrestled into a cogent result. They map the reality of what has been asked for, create and offer a plan that delivers it on scope, on time and on budget. Who needs creative? Right? Wrong. This book is for the detail-oriented project manager who does not believe that creativity has any place in a well-run project. It's also for the project manager who just wants to take their career to the next level. This book will be a thought-sparking journey into a more creative and satisfying life as project manager.

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.

Author:Martina Huemann, PhD; Pernille Eskerod, PhD; Claudia Ringhofer, PhD
Description:Rethink! Project Stakeholder Management broadens the current view of project landscapes in this thoroughly researched investigation of project stakeholder theory, methods, and practices.

Building on the current literature, Huemann, Eskerod, and Ringhofer portray the two most common stakeholder management approaches as existing on a continuum between managing of stakeholders and managing for stakeholders. Their research study offers detailed insights into how four contemporary projects, each with complex stakeholder situations and different stakeholder management styles, used focus groups and systemic constellation methods to aid project teams in clarifying roles, visualizing relationships, and identifying stakeholders and their needs.

Description:
Expert judgment is a major source of information that can provide vital input to project managers, who must ensure that projects are completed successfully, on time, and on budget.

Too often, however, companies lack detailed processes for finding and consulting with experts—making it hard to match the required know-how with the project at hand. In Expert Judgment in Project Management: Narrowing the Theory-Practice Gap, Paul S. Szwed provides research that will help project managers become more adept at using expert judgment effectively.
