When projects are complex and there is a lot at stake, there mostly is a kind of Project Board. Sometimes organizations call it a steering committee or a program committee. Managers with different expertise and different intentions are asked to keep the project or program on target. Is the Project Board effective? Sometimes. Is it easy to function as a joined team? No. For most people itis just another meeting in a long row. Do we need to abandon this monster? Certainly not. Just make the Project Board work. The Effective Project Board makes managers familiar with the nature, role and tasks of project boards. It enables managers to actively and consciously contribute to the success of projects in their organizations. It provides answers to questions such as: * Why do we have project boards? * What is expected from project board members before and during a project? * How can we establish managers' eligibility for project boards? * How do project boards relate to organizational governance? This book is aimed at managers who want to find out how they can fulfil their role as project board member. Project and program managers who want to learn how they can address the intricacies of project boards will also find it useful.
