"This is not only the most comprehensive book ever published on the subject, but it should certainly become the standard for PMO development for years to come. If your organization has a need for developing a PMO, this book should be required reading for all executives."

About the Item

Official reference material for the Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)SM Credential Examination

This comprehensive book presents a road map for the achievement of high value enterprise strategies and superior project management results. It provides methods for best project selection, faster completion, optimal project portfolio management, and how to explicitly measure the PMO for rapidly increasing project ROI.


The Project/Program Management Office (PMO) is the fastest growing concept in project management today and is key to effective implementation of project management across the organization. To keep pace with customer expectations, competition, and economic conditions in the fast-paced global economy, organizations must do more using fewer resources. Advanced Project Portfolio Management and the PMO shows you how to turn your PMO into a value machine.
