Building Project Management Centers of Excellence
Book Reviews
 
 
“Finally a book that examines the topic of building Project Management Centers of Excellence from someone who has been there and done it. I can't imagine the hours and dollars organizations will save by reading this book first. The guidelines, templates, and tables speak for themselves. As someone that has been involved in the startup of several different Project Management Offices within several industries, I indeed believe this book will stand up to the test of time. It’s a contribution that spans all industries.”

“Mr. Bolles combines his extensive knowledge of project management with his 'real life' experiences in setting up Project Management Offices and Centers of Excellence. There is an excellent balance of theory and experience, offering both high-level planning and political considerations as well as detailed tools and techniques for implementing project offices. I also consider Building Project Management Centers of Excellence a must-read for managers, senior managers, and executives preparing themselves for the arduous task of establishing project management within their organizations.”
