Power in Projects, Programs and Portfolios

Achieve project excellence and create change with strategic impact

By John Ryding Olsson, Mette Lindegaard Attrup

Power in Projects, Programs, and Portfolios is the best-selling Danish project management book that highlights the immensely successful Scandinavian approach to leadership within project management, and it takes a more holistic approach to project work and project management. The authoritative book deals with classic project management disciplines and focuses on the essential link between strategic priorities, any program's impact and a project's powerful execution. It takes an in-depth look at areas such as change management, change communication, benefit tracking, program management, and portfolio management. The book offers a large number of practical tools within projects management and leadership with on-line access to concrete and easy-to-use practical tools and templates. Recent years have seen a pronounced increase in the need for professional project management and the careful handling of associated portfolios. This success is essential as key projects become ever more vital for the development and survival of organizations. It is no longer enough for projects to 'just' produce a set of deliverables. They are expected to make a genuine difference within the organization and effect that organization's role in the wider world. Consequently, project management is not just about project managers, it's about how senior management handles crucial portfolios successfully as well. Such active project management requires power, strength, drive, and energy, not only within the individual project itself, but also within the organization's programs and entire project portfolio. It places new demands on both the project manager and their senior management.
