"What makes this book especially appealing as a learning tool is its content organization that allows readers to focus selectively on issues in specific areas, such as the nine knowledge areas of PMI's PMBOK® Guide, or a program life-cycle phase, or best practices related to PMI's OPM3®."Hans Thamhain, PMP, PhD Bentley College
"This wide-ranging book will serve the needs of its readers in many ways by addressing multiple knowledge areas as well as describing best practices beyond any specific area. Furthermore, it addresses one of the most timely (and least understood) areas in the fieldthe hierarchical perspective of project, program, and organization."Aaron Shenahr, PhD, Rutgers Business School
