From the Publisher"The authors have produced another thought provoking, next generation look at the project based organization, change, politics, and role of the project office. The journey they depict expands and challenges the status quo and gives them a prominent place as thought leaders on the future of project management. This book's premise, that projects are vehicles of change and change is the life blood of world-class companies, makes it a must read for project managers, program managers, and portfolio managers."
— Dalton Weekley, President, Human Systems Knowledge Networks, Inc.

"If you are a practicing project or program manager faced with the challenge of driving a multi-organizational complex project, this book is for you. While not providing exactly a how-to recipe, Englund and his colleagues describe from personal experience what works and what remarkable results can be achieved with passion, persistence and good upper management sponsorship."
— Peter Rosenbladt, Hewlett-Packard R&D; Manager (retired)
"What's a project office and why do you want one? Different organizations are at different points along a continuum on the use and acceptance of project offices. While there is no simple or secret answer to creating a project office and leading organizational change, Englund, Graham, and Dinsmore construct a compelling case that the process of implementing a project office will, itself, be a catalyst for organizational change."
