Corporate governance has come under intense scrutiny in recent
years, following numerous high profile corporate collapses.
Shareholders and other stakeholders are demanding increased
accountability, transparency, and ability to implement strategy. As
projects and programs are the vehicles for delivery of corporate
strategies, project governance, within the corporate governance
framework, has become a hot topic in organizations.
In the last year or so, project and program governance have
become widely used terms in organizations and have been used in
titles for several conferences, but there has till now, been no
publication that has clearly presented project and program
governance concepts and their application in practice. This
book meets the needs of researchers, teachers of project
management and practitioners while also responding to the needs of
senior managers, project and program managers in organizations
tasked with establishing project governance frameworks. It presents
a clear view of what constitutes project governance, how it relates
to corporate governance and how it can be deployed in organizations
to enhance corporate performance.
