A Standard for Enterprise Project Managementby Michael S. Zambruski
Synopses & Reviews
Providing structured yet adaptable models of project success within an organization, A Standard for Enterprise Project Management explains each of the basic elements needed for project success and integrates them into a balanced life-cycle continuum.

Each phase contains an explanation and an illustration of how to optimize success. Throughout the text, the author refers to numerous appendices that constitute both blank and completed templates. He provides details on how to use these tools, with an emphasis on balancing the benefits of standardization and the need for flexibility.

Book News Annotation:
Consultant Zambruski provides a structured yet adaptive model of project management intended for integration into a balanced life-cycle continuum. He also provides practical policies, procedures, and templates for the uniform management of projects across a firm. He works from the enterprises vision and mission onward to business requirements, and includes project templates and completed samples of key project management tools. Unlike many project management texts, he provides advice on project documentation, project control methods, testing, training, and change control. He also includes advice on project closure and a long series of appendices on phases of the project, authorization and initiation, analysis and planning, and execution and control. Illustrations are helpful rather than obtrusive, and Zambruski offers a succinct glossary. The result is a handy desk reference as well as an in-service and classroom text.
