About the book

Effective project decision making is recognised as a key feature of successful projects. Ineffective decision making leads to project delay and failure.

Project Governance takes readers through the logical steps required for the establishment of a project governance framework for a project or organisation. Starting with problems typical of ineffective project governance, it develops a set of principles designed to overcome these problems and builds a framework based on these principles.

This comprehensive guide explains how to populate the framework effectively, provides the accountabilities and responsibilities of the main roles , and describes how to integrate the project governance framework into the organisation.

Whether you are a project management practitioner or a student of project management, the lessons learned in this valuable handbook make for essential reading.
