Description:Not all project procurements are the same. Unless the project carefully makes an assessment of the items it will make, versus the items it will buy, and then adequately plans for these purchases, the risks of performance will increase.

Project procurements are simply sub-projects, which need to be managed well, not blindly delegated to an independent organization to buy for the project. Certain procurements, major complexity developments, creating something new, which does not exist, according to the project's unique specification, must be managed by the project team, and supported by the professional procurement organization. The project's team leader must assume the management responsibility.

This book zeroes in on the effective management of that portion of the project which will be performed by another organization. It focuses on the procurement of scope from an organization outside of the project. Often, the success or failure of a project is dependent on how well the project can plan, define, solicit, authorize and manage this external relationship. This book has been updated to be consistent with Chapter 12 of the Fourth Edition of the PMBOK ® Guide, released by PMI in December 2008.

Description:
The Business of Portfolio Management offers keys to adopting a new approach to portfolio management that boosts organizational value. A veteran in the field, author Iain Fraser proposes a solution that lies in using the value management framework to link organizational strategy to portfolio content and to delivery mechanisms. In this expansive guide, case study examples illuminate in-depth discussions explaining the value management framework, implementation and delivery techniques, portfolio leadership qualities, key roles and professional development, and change management. Also included is an overview of organizational maturity models to evaluate project, program, and portfolio performance as well as tools and techniques to implement, execute, and measure their benefits and value contribution.

Description:Megaproject Organization and Performance: The Myth and Political Reality delves into the complex world of organizing megaprojects and investigates the extent to which the performance of these projects could be traced back to their organizational structure.
This in-depth study brings a complementary perspective to megaproject literature and enables us to reconcile conflicting explanations for the regularity with which megaprojects miss performance targets. With pluralism at the core of the megaproject’s organizational structure, the authors argue that megaprojects work best when accountability is shared and everyone has a stake in the final outcome.

Description:Creativity and productivity, rapid adaptation to change, value for the customer—these are just some of the advantages of implementing agile practices in project work. However, agile practices have been most widely and successfully undertaken in the context of small, colocated teams working on small software projects, known as the “agile sweet spot.”

In this monograph, Brian Hobbs and Yvan Petit explore the use and impact of agile outside of the agile sweet spot. Through a case study and survey questionnaire, they uncover research questions that have remained largely unexamined in the literature, on the project level as well as on the organizational level.

Description:In this groundbreaking book, the authors explore how those who serve as leaders on projects can exercise their roles in ways that respond to the ever-increasing need for ethical decision making. They examine the factors that enable and constrain responsible leadership, looking at the issues faced by project managers as they interact with team members and other stakeholders. Responsible Leadership also provides new insights into how project managers view the moral implications of conflicts that occur as they conduct their work and is a valuable addition to the project management toolkit.

Description:A growing number of organizations have embraced organizational project management (OPM) in an effort to increase performance and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Research shows that a successful OPM strategy is dependent upon strong project management methodology – one that aligns organizational goals across the portfolio of projects.
An effective project management methodology provides a standardized, organization- or situation-specific approach that encourages efficient use of resources in order to enable the organization to focus on its most important tasks—leading, innovating, and delivering products and services. While some organizations recognize the importance of project management, others continue to execute projects without a methodology. The lack of a strong methodology could lead to project or program failure.
Project Management Institute has introduced Implementing Organizational Project Management: A Practice Guide to assist organizations in developing and defining effective project management methodologies. In a 2012 PMI market research project, more than half of the respondents identified a lack of published guidance on development of customized methodologies.
This practice guide outlines practical knowledge and steps to define and develop a methodology in alignment with the foundational standards and framework that were first provided in PMI’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).
