"Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown." -George Shinn
Gerald Kendall and Kathleen Austin's book "Advanced Multi-Project Management" confronts the critical reason why projects fail and why, according to the Standish Group, project success is not improving. This book addresses the key concerns that senior management has with implementing the right projects at the right time with the right resources to take advantage of a strategic opportunity while at the same time providing guidance to the organization's program managers who are overworked and fighting for resources to complete the project that they already have under way. The book highlights key processes required to control the flow of active projects, develop a correct project network, implement a strategic buffer, establish a single project priority system, enable faster execution and provide a consistent methodology for recovering projects to ensure investment benefits are achieved.
