Bill Dow, PMP, is a recognized expert in Project Management by the Project Management Institute (PMI) for specifically developing and managing Project Management Offices (PMOs.) His extensive experience with Project Management and PMOs have enabled him to co-author several comprehensive books available through Amazon.com. This is Bill at a PMI Conference signing books for PMI members. It was a great day.
Here is some of the things people have been saying about Bill's Books:
The Tactical Guide for Building a PMO -
"This book set and met my expectations quite well. It's clear from the start that this is a practical, step by step guide for building a PMO, not a book on theory. It methodically steps through the thought process that goes into building a well formed PMO. As I read I found I continually questioned what was necessary for a PMO in my organization. As Bill often points out, too often PMO's feel the need to overburden PM's with process or produce templates or reports because they feel they are supposed to, rather than questioning "what problem is this PMO here to solve?". The suggestions made in the book for aligning your PMO to a business need and then continuing to market the services the PMO provides in support of that need were truly refreshing. The book provides tools such as templates for capturing critical decision points, sample build schedules, etc. Those tools and templates help to encapsulate the thoughts you have while reading into inputs for the design and build process."
"OMG ! this book is an excellent resource for me. I am currently writing my dissertation on 'Critical Success factors and failures in implementing PMO's". I was able to joint notes and references and I may finally have working title. I love the actual MS schedule for assembling a PMO.
Thank you so much for this book!"
Project Management Communication Tools -
"Great book with a ton of very useful tools. I have been doing project management for a while so had got into a bit of a rut with what I do. This is really helping me get to the next level. I also really like the fact that it addresses social media and project management. I highly recommend this book."
