Book Description

This indispensable handbook details the practical steps that can lead to success in programme management. Accelerating change has demanded that companies and organisations use programme management methods and techniques to effect it. John Bartlett provides the benefit of his deep involvement in managing large-scale change, where his advice and guidance have proved successful for both the private and public sectors of commerce and industry.

The book is compatible with several existing frameworks, not least the UK government’s Managing Successful Programmes approach. It is arranged without cumbersome theory but presents just the essentials needed for good practice. The Essentials of Managing Programmes is recommended reading in many universities and the Association for Project Management.

Pick up and use this concise, intensely practical guide to develop a shared understanding, shared language and shared purpose in all your programmes; across project managers, sponsors, programme board members and all those involved in or affected by organizational transformation.
