"I am confident you will find this book to be a very helpful resource as you manage business transformation and change programs."
― Thomas H. Davenport, Professor, Babson College and Digital Fellow, MIT
"Satish offers a practical guidebook that balances both the art and science of program management―regardless of what industry you are in. It has the credibility that only comes from someone who has been there. Well done!"
― F. Warren McFarlan, Baker Foundation Professor, Harvard Business School
"This book is a must read for those involved with large-scale transformation programs... and today, that's most everyone, including senior executives. It seems like every company faces a major transformation every few years, driven by the ever-increasing pace of change and new competitive pressures caused by mega-trends such as digitization and globalization. Running these transformation programs well is a competitive advantage in itself, and Satish's book is a comprehensive yet pragmatic view of how to make these transformation programs successful."
― Romil Bahl, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Global Industries, CSC
"Satish does an excellent job of telling readers how program management can help transform companies. As the primary research analyst in the design of the 60 points of transformational leadership, I instantly recognized the credibility of how Satish details the importance of people and talent in his six principles of transformational program management. It was a pleasure to read a book written by a true expert and peer who supports many of the theories we have found to be accurate in the years of research we have done at CTPartners and Transformational Labs on the relationship between transformational talent and business transformation. Satish simplifies what many of us embrace as a complex task of assembling the right talent required for effective transformational program management. Certainly a must read for anyone wanting to grasp an in- depth knowledge of this topic or tasked with the implementation of program management that has the ability to transform thinking and results."
― Jeff Christian, CEO and Founder, Transformational Lab and Former CEO and Founder, CTPartners (Formerly Christian & Timbers)
"Satish has introduced a pragmatic approach which is long overdue in the transformation business. He obviously has been involved in a number of successes and failures which only makes his insights richer and more meaningful. If you have not driven transformation at this level, then this book is your primer―if you have, then this will serve to help up your game next time around."
― Jim Caruso, Executive Vice President, World Wide Services, EIS Group
"This book serves as an excellent resource for program, project, portfolio, and change managers, providing detailed coverage of 15 techniques that need to be applied to drive large-scale programs and projects to success. Satish follows a clear and distinct path―each chapter unfolds with precision and delivers tangible tools and steps to implement. If you appreciate clarity, Satish has written this book for you. Reference the roadmap in his book for managing strategic initiatives, cross-functional programs, and complex projects, and learn from a senior practitioner who has been there, done that…and written about it!"
― Bill Yates, Executive Vice President, Velociteach
"This is a genuinely new and exciting look at program management. It takes the professional discipline of program management and demonstrates its practical value in the context of a complex transformation environment. A 'must read' for the C-suite!"
― Global Portfolio and Program Management Leader, Big Four Consulting Firm
"Managing a large, complex portfolio of critically important programs and projects has never been easy. Yet the skills required have never been more important as businesses everywhere work to constantly reinvent themselves in response to rapidly changing global markets. Without a comprehensive framework to guide the program manager, the accumulated bodies of knowledge available will often overwhelm rather than help ensure success. In Transforming Business with Program Management, Satish Subramanian brings just the right blend of academic rigor, logic, and a practitioner’s pragmatic approach to the description of such an essential framework. Covering all the necessary aspects―strategic, procedural, technical, and human factors―Satish sets out to describe and organize all the things a program manager must ensure happen to deliver transformational results, providing a valuable handbook for anyone setting out to manage transformational change."
― John Parkinson, Chairman and Managing Director, Parkwood Advisors
"This book provides a clear roadmap for business organizations to successfully implement the kind of sophisticated and integrated transformation so often needed in today’s fast-changing global economy. It is well researched, providing a wealth of conceptual knowledge and case studies and it provides a concrete framework for the hardest part of strategic market adaptation―getting the execution right. I urge business leaders to read it now, before the competition does."
― Dr. Charles Maxey, PhD. Founding Dean, California Lutheran University of School of Management Co-Director, Center for Leadership & Values and Fellow, Center for Economic Forecasting & Research California Lutheran University
"Satish Subramanian’s book is a must-read for anyone planning a new, or struggling with a current, complex business-critical initiative. The book is highly structured, easy to read, and provides valuable models, processes, techniques, and tools for managing large-scale programs. Satish’s insights and methods are then described in real-world situations through numerous case studies. The book is not only a practical roadmap for practitioners to successfully deliver the expected business outcomes, but it is also a comprehensive textbook for learning about program, project, and organization change management. Everyone in the business and educational sectors would benefit from reading this book and taking Satish’s insights to heart."
― Sam Doying, Sales Executive, Big Four Consulting and High Tech Industry
"Effecting transformational change in any organization comes down to the successful coordination of many discrete yet related strategic initiatives. This book provides a powerful template for success in business transformation and program management."
― Tim Z. Dilley, Cloud Computing Consulting Executive
"Satish provides observations, evidence, and instructions on program management objectives across business transformation efforts. Using the disciplined approach described in this book will increase the odds of success for strategic change management. Each sentence is packed with content that deserves the reader’s thoughtful analysis in customizing the approach to achieve the program’s objectives. Leaders are the catalyst for change and, by using the techniques in this book to engage company employees, the organization becomes the agents of change. I’ve known Satish for almost 20 years and have seen him use the principles in this book to help companies in a variety of complex strategic initiatives―from merger acquisition integration, to systems implementation, to operational change, and regulatory compliance. The book’s recipes are not just a how-to checklist; rather the book provides a framework to replicate the success Satish has proven in his life’s work. I love the way Satish provides information to guide PMOs and manage change and recommend this book to anyone involved in a transformation program."
― Partner and Executive Consultant, Big Four Professional Services Firm

Satish presents a clear and concise roadmap to guide any business or enterprise through their critical transformations in response to ever changing business conditions.
Many Project Sponsors have asked “Where do I begin to fix this problem?”, to which I sometimes inquired “What is it that your organization really needs?” A strategic plan that is holistic yet simple, tying in relevant aspects of an operation, that helps Team Players at all levels stay focus on what truly matters can help do wonders. Such plan is unique to each organization. What an organization’s “Fearless Leaders” need is an agile framework which helps organize thoughts and prioritize initiatives. The six dimensions of program management in this book is certainly a great start.
With questions, issues, acknowledgements, requests, reminders, and what not, that come across our desks and inboxes every minute, who has the time to sit down and philosophize, let alone the privilege to be fully engaged in a program from start to finish. If you are like me, once you have read the Preface and the Executive Review (Chapter 1) of this book, even if you do not have time to keep reading on, you will also appreciate that this is a great handy reference to keep close at hand as an effective just-in-time reference.
Satish, thanks for sharing your insights in this new addition to my Management Library!
