Second edition of bestselling title now available

12 November 2015 – London, UK – Gower Publishing has announced the publication of the Second Edition of Program Management by Michel Thiry. Michel is a Fellow of both the Project Management Institute and of the Association for Project Management.

151112-pmwj40-Thiry-BOOKAccording to Gower, program management (PgM) is fast developing into the essential link between strategy and projects and as a vehicle for organizational change. It offers the means to manage groups of projects with a common business purpose in an integrated and effective way.

The Second Edition of Michel Thiry’s Program Management builds on the bestselling title first published in 2010. The heavily revised text reflects the latest program management guides and international standards and includes: a new section on agile management in programs; the author’s own program management maturity measure; a new section on change management, which is now integral to many programs. Michel has also reviewed and revised the program lifecycle to align with the more unified view of program management that has emerged since the book was first published.

The result is an essential guide to program management that incorporates a robust theoretical framework, complemented by examples and advice from one of the world’s leading practitioners.
