about this item
In the six years since this Gower Handbook was first published, programme management has been transformed to become the vehicle of choice for realising the objectives of large scale, complicated, business, government and social investment. The Second Edition of this Gower Handbook is a completely new text; designed as a definitive guide to the current state of programme management. To that end, the text offers foundation theory and knowledge around key issues such as, managing programme contracts, people and know-how, complexity and uncertainty, benefits and success measures, as well as every stage of the programme life cycle. The main central section of the book provides theory, tools, advice and examples of practical application from an industry context and covers sectors including construction, energy, aerospace and defence, IT, automotive and the public sector. The Handbook also includes a section with chapters on assessing and improving programme competences and developing maturity. Discrete chapters relate programme management to the international baselines and standards (APM, MSP, IPMA ICB, ISO 21504, PMI Standard) to help readers understand the context of their work. Collectively, the Gower Handbook of Programme Management is most comprehensive guide to the subject that you can buy.
