There are plenty of books about project management, but this is the first one written for the people who have the most at stake: the senior executives who will ultimately be held accountable for the successes of the projects they approve and supervise. Top enterprise project management expert Michael Bender explains project management from the perspective that matters most to executives: adding value. Most books view project management from the inside, focusing primarily on lower-level issues, such as the creation of Work Breakdown Structures. A Manager's Guide to Project Management views it from above, explaining how project managers can best achieve the strategic goals of the business; the executive's role in successful project management; and the tools available to executives who want to gain greater value from project management. Drawing on his extensive experience, Bender shows how to: make sure project and enterprise goals align; structure organizations to support more effective project communication and decision making; integrate project processes with other organizational processes; oversee projects more effectively. This book contains a full section on understanding and managing projects as capital investments, including detailed coverage of building balanced project portfolios. Bender concludes with a sophisticated discussion of managing projects in global environments and optimizing resources where multiple projects must be managed.


?Mike Bender has applied his considerable expertise to crafting straightforward and pragmatic guidelines on making project management work for your enterprise. Now it's up to you. This is how you add value to your organization.?

-Kimi Hirotsu Ziemski, PMP, VP Community Relations, PMI SFBAC; author,When Opposites Collide: Leadership Beyond Gender;

?Were I an executive moving my organization to take advantage of new challenges, I'd want this book to ensure I achieve the most out of my project portfolio. Michael Bender distills the essentials of project management into what executives need to know without overwhelming them. He treats projects as capital investments for executives to achieve greater returns in this ever challenging economic environment.?

-Michael F.Malinowski, PMP, IT Manager, Exelon Corporation; and author,IT Maintenance: Applied Project Management
