PMOSIG Selects Taming Change Chapter for PMO Handbook

We are pleased to announce that the Project Management Institute (PMI) PMO Specific Interest Group (SIG) has selected chapter 16, The Portfolio Management Office, of Taming Change with Portfolio Management, to be used as the epilogue in their PMO Handbook, to be published by J. Ross.

Dennis Bolles, PMP, the PMOSIG Vice Chair of Public Relations and coordinator for the PMO Handbook project, said, "We believe your chapter would make an excellent Epilogue, because it basically summarizes the issues discussed in all six of book's sections and it would provide a superb ending to the book." The Taming Change authors Pat Durbin and Terry Doerscher are honored to have an opportunity to contribute to the PMO Handbook project, as well as support the ongoing efforts of the PMO SIG as it transitions into the new Program Management Community of Practice.
