Managing Successful Programmes describes the OGC's (the Office of Government Commerce) approach to managing change and delivering business benefits. As a Senior Programme Manager this book provided me with all of the information and knowledge that I needed to sell my services to my clients whether public or private sector.
Unlike PRINCE2 it is succinct surprisingly free of jargon and rather than focusing on the detail gives an overview of key areas leaving the day to day application at your discretion.
The chapters on benefits and stakeholder management are particularly useful with examples of powerful methods that can be used in the real world to identify and analyze stakeholders.
In all a clear well structured book ideal for any involved in Programme Management.
