“This book is the authoritative source of information on a complex topic — and yet it is ultimately approachable, readable, and referenceable. With a clear writing style and packed with useful examples, it’s easily the one book on the subject that I will be keeping on my primary reference shelf and sending to my clients and colleagues for their own use.” — Tony Appleby, MBA, PMP, The Project Strategy Consulting Group, Inc.

“Tom Kendrick has done an excellent job exploring the various methods for success in this book. The examples amplify the concepts presented and the emphasis on leadership qualities program managers require for an effective strategy adds to the book’s depth.” — Dr. Ginger Levin, PMP, PgMP, and author of Program Management: A Life Cycle Approach

“At long last we have a definitive work on program management. Tom Kendrick’s insights and powerful examples provide learning that can be applied immediately to even the most complex program. Kendrick’s style is easy and enjoyable to read. There are nuggets for very experienced program managers and an excellent approach for those new to managing complexity. This book will become a prominent and oft-used part of my project management bookshelf, and it should be required reading for anyone asked to manage a complex program or project.— Patrick Neal, PhD, PMP, Principal Consultant, Project Synergistics

“Kendrick’s book fills a profound gap in project management literature. I look forward to sharing this book with experienced project and program managers, who will find it an invaluable reference. More importantly, I look forward to sharing it with sponsors and key stakeholders of significant program efforts to help these people better appreciate the complexity to be managed and the challenges that the program and program manager can expect to face.”— Payson Hall, PMP, CEO Catalysis Group
