Program Management Complexity: A Competency Model fills this void.

Next, it presents a competency model, based on the authors? seven decades of collective experience in the field, which follows the framework of PMI's model for project managers. Useful for corporate and government organizations, universities, executives, PMO directors and human resources professionals who need to determine program management training needs, this unique model is divided into performance competencies and personal competencies.
The performance competencies are organized according to the six domains of program management, while the eight personal competencies are based on research plus a survey of PgMPs? worldwide. After presenting the model, along with detailed plans and guidelines for its implementation in a real-world setting, the book presents three questionnaires designed to help organizations, existing program managers, and aspiring program managers assess their own development plans.
Supplying you with the insight to recognize the elements of complexity during the defining and initiating stages, this book includes detailed guidelines to help you recruit, train, and develop program managers capable of delivering stated program benefits, services, and results.
Book News Annotation:
The authors, credentialed as "Program Management Professionals" by the Project Management Institute, offer their advice on managing complexity in programs across industries and provide information on the set of competencies that is required to be a successful program manager. They begin with a literature review of program and project management complexity and then present a competency model for program managers that addresses the performance competencies of defining, initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing the program and the personal competencies of communicating, leading, building relationships, negotiating, thinking critically, facilitating, mentoring, and embracing change. They also include assessment instruments for assessing one's own competencies. The CD-ROM appears to just reproduce the model and the assessment instruments in electronic form.
