Just as DNA contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all living organisms, what if we could decode the elements of management and strategy execution?

This insightful book offers new perspectives on age-old management challenges and illuminates better ways to organize and manage in an increasingly DANCE-world (Dynamic. Ambiguous. Non-Linear. Complex. Emergent). It puts the management DNA under the microscope, and shows how to develop, build and transform organizational project management and PMO capabilities essential for effective strategy execution. It provides a framework to measure what matters with a step-by-step approach to define and measure success and business value.

The DNA of Strategy Execution: Next Generation Project Management and PMO provides innovative insights for organizational project management and PMO. Based on application and learnings from many organizations around the world, this book reveals a playbook for strategy execution that will help you:

  • Decode the core elements of management and strategy execution DNA
  • Design and build next-generation Project/Program Management and PMO platform essential for effective strategy execution
  • Prepare your organization to effectively lead and implement agile transformation and organizational change
  • Improve organizational project management (OPM) and PMO maturity
  • Improve overall organizational effectiveness and innovation capabilities

Whether you are a part of a startup, or an established incumbent organization, the impact of digitization and disruption requires a rethink and reset of how we organize and manage. This book presents a playbook for effective strategy execution with next-generation Project, Program and PMO capabilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed playbook to take the PMOs to the next level
By Shakeel Akhtar on July 4, 2020
Survival of a PMO beyond the first 3 years of standing it up has a 50-50 chance. On top of that, the PMO that survives longer does so, not necessarily because of its effectiveness, but a lack of metrics to measure its success. For that reason many companies look at PMOs as paper-pushing entities from a bygone era. In this book, Jack Duggal takes a holistic approach by coming up with a framework to merge strategy with execution. With this framework, anyone starting out a PMO will have a playbook to do it right, right from the beginning. For an existing PMO, this book provides many approaches to reset and then rethink the way it organizes and manages projects.

As shown in the picture, I have highlighted many pages of this book and planning to use it as a reference as situations arise. I highly recommend this book for companies that are in the middle of an agile transformation, or planning to start one since it provides a holistic way of becoming agile with rigor but without rigidity.
