Description - Project Management Lessons Learned by Mel Bost

"Readers can benefit from the expertise of Mel Bost as both a project manager and a PMO practitioner. Kudos to him for bringing us this valuable perspective on lessons learned." -Mark Price Perry, Founder, BOT International and author of Business Driven Project Portfolio Management

"Every project -by definition -produces a valuable outcome, whether it be a bridge, an app, or a new service. But what author Mel Bost points out so well in this book, is that projects also yield something perhaps even more valuable: lessons learned, enabling an enterprise to execute projects sustainably better, with sustained benefits realization. With a flair for storytelling, Bost uses case studies, templates, and examples from his vast and varied PM and PMO experience to make this book a valuable read for any project manager who wants to consistently master the art and science of project management." -Rich Maltzman, co-author of the Cleland Award-Winning Green Project Management as well as Bridging the PM Competency Gap

Project Management Lessons Learned: A Continuous Process Improvement Framework is intended for project managers, PMO professionals, and students of project management who wish to apply performance-based feedback to their process and project improvements. This feedback is the basis for modern process control theory, which is playing a greater and greater role in process design. Readers can apply the Process Feedback Framework, as well as lesson learned from the book's case studies, to meet challenges that arise now and in the future.

Special focus is given to technology development in projects and sustainability implications of process design. The book emphasizes rationale for a robust project risk management program which capitalizes on lessons learned. PMO leaders can use the organizational dynamics and systems archetypes applications presented in the book to define project policy standards and procedures to align PMO behaviors with performance objectives.
