risk-management-for-project-driven-organizationsRisk Management for Project Driven Organizations: A Strategic Guide to Portfolio Program and PMO Success, by Andy Jordan, PMP

Organizations invest a lot of time, money, and energy into developing and utilizing risk management practices as part of their project management disciplines.  Yet, when you move beyond the project to the program, portfolio, PMO and even organizational level, that same level of risk command and control rarely exists.

Andy Jordan presents a practical, adaptable risk management approach that enables dramatically improved command and control of risks from an organizational perspective. He also provides guidelines on how to ensure that they are managed effectively.

“For far too long, the subject of project-based risk management has been focused at the project level, and while there have been discussions of risk management at the program level, it has been quite limited in scope. A commonly held misconception is that risk affects just projects, rather than the entire organization. Mr. Jordan in his book: “Risk Management for Project Driven Organizations: A Strategic Guide to Portfolio, Program and PMO Success,” attempts to raise our sights to engage the entire organization in risk management.” ~ David A. Maynard MBA, PMP 

Risk Management for Project Driven Organizations: A Strategic Guide to Portfolio, Program and PMO Success, by Andy Jordan, PMP; Published by J. Ross Publishing May 2013; Hardcover, 6 x 9, 360 pages; ISBN: 978-1-60427-085-3; List Price $54.95. Information at http://www.jrosspub.com/risk-management-for-project-driven-organizations.html

Managing Stakeholder Expectations for Project Success: A Knowledge Integration Framework and Value Focused Approach, by Ori Schibi, PMP.

This unique guide provides a practical approach to managing those things that matter most for project success–stakeholder expectations,communication, risk, change and quality, so that the scope, schedule and cost end up on target as well as the project’s intended benefits for the organization.

In addition, Schibi tackles organizational politics and culture, two areas rarely covered in business books, but are nonetheless criticial to successful project management. 

“This book finds the right balance between technical and philosophical guidance, offering advice beyond traditional tools, templates, and checklists, while distilling the realm of project management into practical and easy to implement concepts. The author approaches project management as a business discipline first, placing stakeholder management, communications, and quality on par with more conventional areas of schedule, scope, risk, and budget management.” ~ Glen Sloutsky, Management Consultant Managing Stakeholder Expectations for Project Success: A Knowledge Integration Framework and Value Focused Approach by Ori Schibi, PMP; Published by J.
