Literature about Project Business Management

Literature on Project Business Management is astonishingly scarce, given the relevance of this business discipline and the challenges and risks it brings to all parties involved.  Entire national economies depend on it. For many organizations, it is a driver for agility and innovation. For a growing number of companies and individuals, it is the primary source of income.

The following books are those I am aware of. If you are know more literature, please send a message here.

Project Business Management

By Oliver F. Lehmann

ISBN: 9780367522070

"Roughly half of all project managers have to lead customer projects as profit centers on contractor side with two big objectives: making the customer happy and bringing money home. Customer projects are a high-risk business on both sides, customers and contractors, but the dynamics of this business have so far been mostly ignored in literature. The book Project Business Management fills this gap."

"After almost two years of work, our first book – The Executive Guide to Breakthrough Project Management – has been published.  We wrote it to give a much better answer to friends and colleagues who asked us 'So what is this idea of yours?'.  A question that we couldn’t do justice to in a casual face-face conversation, other than so say 'we procure, contract and manage projects using better methods than most projects today use'."
