While the scope of Taming Change is well beyond those interested in adopting IT service management, the concepts apply extremely well to that environment. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how portfolio management can and should be integrated into an overall program for effective IT/Business governance.

Change is the rule to day, not the exception. In the past the effects of economic climate changes were long term, they became the new norm for many years. The changes that have affected all of us, individuals and businesses, around the world beginning in 2008 have created conditions that we have never experienced before. The economic challenges that are impacting organizations of all sizes around the world are without precedence. Today our roles as business leaders and the way we have managed the cost of doing business as usual are gone. Our mindset of how we manage our organizations must change if we are to survive these economic challenges.

Pat Durbin and Terry Doerscher have developed a concept for managing change with the Portfolio Ecosystem in their book "Taming Change with Portfolio Management: Unify Your Organization, Sharpen Your Strategy, And Create Measurable Value" that provides organizations of all types and sizes a way to effectively manage changes impacting all areas of the organization. This book is written for business executives by business executives using the language that is understood by executives.

This book is by far the best book about positioning the Project Management Office within an organization to affectively "...apply the discipline of portfolio management to take command of change events as they flow through your organization." (Durbin and Doerscher p3).

I highly recommend this new portfolio management book written by Pat Durbin and Terry Doerscher, two of the thought leaders at Planview and within the project management community. The book provides a comprenhensive set of topics and a unique perspective not found in the current literature. Many organizations struggle with the pressing reality that change needs to be organizational instituionalized, not viewed as a one time event. Durbin and Doerscher have teamed to pen a must-read book on this often difficult to understand and implement domain. Congrats to the authors.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book both for portfolio management practitioners and executives. Several aspects of the book are outstanding: the integration of project portfolio management into the greater organizational context of managing a business, process focus and the emphasis on using portfolio management as an instrument of change. This book is both visionary and relevant to practitioners at the same time. Highly recommended.
