Bill Dow, PMP’s Books – Both Current and Past!
Bill Dow, PMP has been in IT for the last 26 years with 23 of those years focusing on Project Management. Bill has built 6 Project Management Offices from the ground up using the best practices and core principles of PMI and have been a tactical project manager since 1991. My latest book The PMO Lifecycle Building, Running and Shutting Down is based off of my first PMO book The Tactical Guide for Building a PMO which was one of the best PMO books on the market. It landed on Amazon as #1 for many-many years and it has been now enhanced with this never version. This list includes Bill’s PMO books and his Project Management books.
Please note, these books are not PMP books, they books are here to help you execute day-to-day, not pass a test. Passing the test is important, I get that, I did mine in 2000, but I am providing you hands-on tactical materials to get the job done!
Bill Dow’s 5th book is called PMO Service Offerings – Selecting the right ones for your PMO! The focus of this book is for PMO Managers to understand what services they need in thier PMO. Some PMO managers really struggle to know what to offer in their PMO, this book will help you with that end-to-end process. Check it out on Amazon today!
Bill Dow’s 4th book is called “The PMO Lifecycle: Building, Running, and Shutting Down”. This is a 452-page reference manual, published by Dow Publishing LLC in 2017. The PMO Lifecycle: Building, Running, and Shutting Down will provide PMO Managers, Portfolio, Program and Project Managers with the knowledge and skills to Build, Run and Shutdown a PMO. No other text on the market will take you through the steps of the PMO lifecycle. This book covers the step by step process of building, implementing, running and shutting down a PMO.
Bill’s 3rd book is called “Project Management Communication Tools”. This is a 703-page reference manual, published by Dow PublishingLLC in 2015. It can be found on Amazon.com and consistently in the Top 100 for Project Management books. This book is still available on Amazon.com.
Bill’s second book is called “The Tactical Guide for Building a PMO”. The book takes his personal experience in building and implementing PMO’s over a 10-year period and puts it into a format that is easy to read and use for any PMO Manager. This book is no longer for sale since it was been replaced by my 4th book “The PMO Lifecycle: Building, Running, and Shutting Down”.
Bill Dow is the co-author of the “Project Management Communication Bible”. This is an 801-page reference manual, published in 2008 for Wiley publishing. It can be found on Amazon.com and consistently in the Top 100 for Project Management books. This book is no longer available on Amazon.com, but was a top seller in its day.
