This book illustrates how the traditional practice of project management advances to handle the more complex problems inherent to strategic organizational transformation.
Projects are a part of everyday life in an organization. Tools and procedures for project management are well understood and applied. However, the management of projects by an organization for substantial transformation is less certain in both practice and study. An awareness of how to manage increasingly complex projects, and collections of projects, to achieve the benefits of organizational transformation becomes ever more crucial in the implementation of new strategies.
This book goes beyond a simple review of tools and techniques common in most publications of project management. We illustrate how the traditional practice of project management advances to handle the more complex problems inherent to strategic organizational transformation. The linkages among projects, operations, and the foundations of an organization provide a perspective of how an organization might pursue the difficult changes required of comprehensive transformation. The fashion in which the project world interacts with the executive world through successive layers of project management principles is prelude to operational benefits realization.
