This book gave me great insights into the types of things to be conscious about when taking a program view versus a project view.
The concepts and examples given are practical and based on common sense.
Although numbers and statistics can be useful to some extent, greater emphasis/focus is given in understanding the big picture and context when delivering programs of work.
Many of these concepts I found were intuitive and made alot of practical sense - I recently started managing a program of work, and I could relate a number of situations and examples described in the book. A number of things I suspected were true were clarified and crystalised in the chapters of the book.
The book also talks of the pitfalls of spending too much time on excessive detail when working as a program manager - it's more important to focus on the overall health of the program rather than getting caught up in uneccessary details.
It's the best book on this topic I have read and I am highly likely to be referencing this book in future.
I highly recommend this book to any new program manager, to any aspiring project manager, or to anyone who wants to understand and improve the programs they work on.
