Advanced Project Portfolio Management and the PMO: Multiplying ROI at Warp Speed


This comprehensive book covers the strategy, tactics, and processes needed for successful project portfolio management. It outlines a road map to unprecedented project management improvement and includes a detailed implementation plan for both strategic planning and a PMO that gives you measurable results in weeks. The author delineates four processes that get a PMO off the ground much faster, driving bottom-line value almost immediately. This book shows you how to turn a PMO into a value machine.


  • Outlines a road map to unprecedented project management improvement
  • Includes real PMO case studies detailing techniques that have helped organizations such as AICPA, Tessco Technologies, City of Kansas City and Oklahoma State university grow and kept them at the top of their industry
  • Reviews the most popular EPM tools and provides a way to evaluate your PMO implementation using a PMO Maturity Model
  • Discusses how the PMO can effectively influence project teams and their team members to consistently seek out delivery acceleration opportunities and/or delivery threats relative to their work and the overall mission of the project team
  • Illustrates how Six Sigma and the PMO can support each other and be used to drive bottom-line value
  • Presents the new Theory of Constraints 4X4 method of strategic planning and the Critical Chain Multi-Project Management approach
