Описание: Project Portfolio Management (PPM) goes beyond the typical project management approach to offer a set of proven business practices that can help executives, program managers, and project managers bring projects into alignment with the strategies, resources, and executive oversight of the overall enterprise. Step by step, this book shows how to take a project from the inception of a vision to the realization of benefits to the organization. Project Portfolio Management draws on project management expert Harvey A. Levine's years of research and distills the knowledge and best pctices from dozens of leaders in the field to show how to select and implement the projects that will garner the best results. Throughout this important resource, Levine tackles the many challenges associated with PPM, including *Ranking value and benefits *Determining the size of the portfolio pipeline *Assessing the impact of uncertainty on projects and portfolios *Understanding the benefit and risk relationship *Establishing a portfolio governance capability *Managing the portfolio to maximize benefits *Implementing PPM
Описание: Command and control mechanisms are often inefficient and suboptimal in the context of complex projects. This book demonstrates an alternative project logic that builds on the definitions of a framework, and overall guidelines, rather than instructions or a pre-defined set of procedures and processes. This logic also entails a leadership philosophy that promotes co-operation as well as an ability to deal with the unexpected. The book is based on interviews with leaders with a documented ability to deal with uncertainty and complexity. The authors conclude that leaders success is closely tied to the creation of a game plan. This game plan makes it possible for those carrying out work to self-manage use their own judgement and competence while striving towards common objectives.

Описание: Differences in management behavior across organizations are attributed to differences in priorities and objectives or differences in the style and preferences of the individuals involved. This volume challenges this image by attending to the extra-organizational and extra-individual forces that shape and constrain how work is structured in organizations. The authors focus their attention on work within and between organizations and emphasize the ways in which the jobs are defined, the power and autonomy they engender, the opportunities that are afforded, and the constraints that are imposed, are continuously contested not only at the individual level, but also at a more aggregate and collective level. This volume is the product of an interdisciplinary gathering of scholars convened with generous support of the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council. It presents new theoretical and empirical papers that examine aspects of the changing nature of jobs and work in organizations from multiple perspectives and methodologies.

Описание: The purpose of the book is to put these new techniques at the disposal of researchers coming from different horizons, to assess the state of the art, to identify the capability of these new algorithms, to evidence the contribution of these methods to Economics and Management Sciences. It is a privileged place to expose the know-how and to discuss new developments and problems encountered in the researches. The contributions in this book bring new confirmations of the interest of connectionist approaches for researchers in Economics and Management Sciences. The first part is dedicated to theoretical advances; the second part presents a wide range of applications. All papers contain interesting results on each subject, which would have been very difficult to show with classical techniques but which has been proven by using these connectionist non linear methods. They reflect the great diversity of connectionist approaches of which we know the reader will benefit for his(her) own research. If this study enlarges the range of analysis tools for researchers in Economics and Management we will have reached our goal of sharing our interest in these new and fascinating connectionist methods.

Описание: In the increasing number of heavily projectized organizations, sustainable, commercial performance depends on their ability to measure and develop the performance of project management. This involves developing new skills and capabilities, such as a learning approach across projects. It also involves transforming established approaches such as corporate governance to match the new project-oriented context and, finally, it involves learning to use projects to enable key organizational objectives, such as sustainability, as well as the project-specific outcomes. The Performance of Projects and Project Management offers perspectives on all of these fundamental aspects of project performance. As such, it is an important book for those concerned with project strategy, project delivery and business sustainability.
