Author:Elmar Kutsch; Mark Hall; Neil Turner
Description:As the title suggests, Project Resilience is about making projects and project managers more resilient. It offers a glimpse into our tendencies to be irrational in the face of adversity: risk, uncertainty and complexity. The second purpose is to offer a new perspective to aid in managing risky, and in particular uncertain and complex projects. The authors go beyond commonly-accepted standards in project management with the aim of providing an understanding of how to implement project-wide resilience. The purpose is to guide, not to prescribe. It is best used as a trigger for a thinking process to define your own unique approach to managing uncertainty, not to replace your experience and judgement. Ultimately, it has been written to challenge traditional wisdom in project management, and to address the rationale for creative best practices.

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:It’s not exactly news that putting the concepts of risk management into action can help make a project more successful. In fact, a solid understanding of risk management is a vital component of any project management professional’s training, regardless of the industry in which he or she might work. In today’s fast-paced, constantly changing, and extremely competitive environment, risk management is more important than ever for businesses hoping to find their footing in the global market.

In Project Risk Management: A Practical Implementation Approach, author Michael M. Bissonette not only provides insights into the best ways to implement the traditional techniques of risk management, but also explores innovative new methods that can help modern organizations build their culture, improve financial performance, and ultimately achieve greater success in all of their projects.

Author:Paul S. Szwed, DSc, PMP
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.

Description:Managing Stakeholders as Clients: Sponsorship, Partnership, Leadership, and Citizenship, Second Edition -- Spanish translation

A pesar de nuestros mejores esfuerzos, con frecuencia los proyectos navegan a la deriva. Uno de los escollos más comúnmente ignorados radica en una gestión de los interesados inadecuada e ineficaz.

Con décadas de investigación en las comunicaciones y relaciones con los interesados, Mario Henrique Trentim, PfMP, CBAP, sugiere un cambio de paradigma en la forma en que los directores de proyectos ven a sus interesados.

Usando lo que él denomina los cuatro “navíos” (patrocinio, asociación, liderazgo y ciudadanía), Trentim traza una ruta exitosa para identificar y comunicarse con los interesados que tendrá un impacto positivo en la forma en que usted concibe a los interesados y el modo en que ellos influyen en su proyecto.

La gestión de los interesados como clientes es un nuevo enfoque, un cambio de paradigma que se distancia de la gestión tradicional de los interesados centrada en la gestión de las expectativas, para proponer una participación proactiva y la implicación de los interesados.

Title:
Author:Quentin W. Fleming
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.
