IT Governance Publishing provides real, workable solutions for effective project governance


Ely, England, 27 April 2011 – Many senior executives in ‘non-project’ industries are charged with initiating and managing projects. Many of these projects fail, or cost significantly more than originally estimated.

The latest pocket guide from ITGP, Project Governance: The Essentials, is a step-by-step guide that will show you how to make the most of your projects and avoid many of the common pitfalls. Written from personal experience by Rod Beecham, a freelance consultant with over 15 years’ experience in the industry, this guide will help you discover: 

  • the functions and relationships of the key parties
  • how long a well-planned project should take to execute
  • what you can do to insure against the unexpected
  • the importance of risk management
  • how to bring it all back to the bottom line.

The key to a successful project is planning and Project Governance: The Essentials will show you how to plan your project effectively and eliminate significant problems before you start.

Alan Calder, Chief Executive of IT Governance, says: ‘Project governance is critical to business competitiveness. Project management and execution become fundamental to an organisation's survival, making project governance one of the Board’s most important responsibilities. It’s about ensuring projects deliver the value expected of them, and this guide explains how effective project governance can generate maximum return on investment ’.
