Earned Benefit Program Management

 

PM PUBLISHING NEW

New book by Kik Piney provides new benefits-based model for program managemen

15 October 2017 – Florida, USA – Routledge has announced the publication of a new book titled Earned Benefit Program Management, authored by Crispin Piney. Published in October 2017, this new book describes how Earned Benefit Program Management techniques provide an innovative, all-inclusive model and set of tools developed specifically to answer critical program management questions.

The model described in this book consolidates the key concepts of project, program, and portfolio management and ensures that all program and portfolio management steps are carried out based on a single, signed-off model in a consistent, verifiable manner within a consolidated life cycle. This approach guarantees alignment with strategic goals and constraints through every stage of a program.

Case studies highlight the key features of the approach and provide important lessons and insights for managing programs. Although the ideas and concepts for each topic are fully consistent with existing standards and other published material, they are based on new thinking and go beyond current practice. They provide a set of original and powerful techniques that are applicable to both programs and portfolios in a wide range of business environments.

Crispin “Kik” Piney, PMP, PgMP, PfMP has been involved in the project world since joining the IT Group at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, in the 1970s, working on cutting-edge development projects. He later moved to the Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), initially in England, before relocating to DEC’s European technical centre in the south of France. While he was with DEC, Kik gained a deeper understanding of the importance of methodology, business alignment, and stakeholder relationship management.

After the acquisition of DEC by Compaq, Kik left in 2000 and set up as an independent consultant and trainer in project management. He invested enthusiasm, time, and effort working as a volunteer with the Project Management Institute (PMI®) on the majority of their standardization efforts, from the Organizational Project Development Management Maturity Model (OPM3®) through their standards for projects, for programs, and for portfolio management. He also contributed actively to the PMI competency development framework, the lexicon, and the Practice Guide for Scheduling. He is one of the three authors of PMI®’s Practice Guide for Project Risk Management.
