Description

Creating the Project Office is written for managers who are searching for ways to transform their
organizations into more effective and efficient project-based workplaces. As this important book reveals,
there is no more effective way to make that change than to create a project office tailored to the needs of
the organization. While a project office model leads to better products from projects, it is also a vehicle
for generating overall organizational change-- by transforming the organization from function-based to
project-based. This model incorporates projects into the very fabric of the organizational strategy and
revitalizes organizations, creates competitive advantage, and increases shareholder value.
