“In the beginning we struggled to plan, schedule, and control a single project; CPM-PERT-PDM and computers started to help; then resource management matured along with program and portfolio management. PMOs and CPOs began to appear, and now, especially for those project driven organizations that depend on projects for most of their revenue, Enterprise Project Governance is emerging. This book will give the reader a comprehensive understanding of this unfolding development that bridges overarching project and operations governance and day-to-day, hands-on direction within complex organizations.”
— Russell D. Archibald, PMI and IPMA Fellow;
author of Managing High-Technology Programs and Projects
