Drawing on decades of experience in program management, Reiss' (Program Management Group, plc, Wetherby, UK) and Rayner's (1947-2011) text offers current and prospective project managers insights into managing multiple projects effectively. The text is designed to accompany Reiss' 1996 Programme Management Demystified, which focuses on the management of single projects. Topics addressed include the differences between programs, portfolios, and projects; keys to selecting the optimal group of projects for achieving an organization's business goals; key factors in doing projects right; governance; methodologies; the program management/support office; and leadership and stakeholder management. The second edition features short case studies from a bank, software company, local government, and central government, and additional information on cross-functional management.
