160612-pmwj47-kendricks-BOOKAccording to AMACOM: Successful program management begins with a good command of project management processes, but these are never sufficient. Once a program exceeds a certain scale, project processes become unwieldy. To see a program successfully through to completion, you must break the work down into simpler, smaller pieces and organize it into interdependent tasks.

Complete with diagrams, graphs, and real-life examples, How to Manage Complex Programs explains the ins and outs of program management and provides concrete and effective techniques for structuring deliverables, workflow, and staffing. You’ll learn to: Decompose complex deliverables into manageable chunks • Develop coherent plans for component projects • Handle cross-project dependencies • Organize program staff and project leaders into a high-performing team • And more.

Tom Kendrick, PMP, has nearly 40 years’ experience practicing and teaching project and program management, including senior positions with Hewlett-Packard and Visa. He is the author of Identifying and Managing Project Risk and other popular titles.
