Contracting, logistics, and reverse logistics are intertwined with the project management, program management, and portfolio management disciplines. In recent years, organizations have started to offer certifications into the strategic areas of program and portfolios. Contracting, logistics, and reverse logistics are strategic opportunities for companies. For this reason, three programs benefit from an overlapping text that demonstrates how project, program, and portfolio management (PPPM) drives better strategy. Ultimately, successful strategy leads to increased value and the difficult topics of ethics, culture, relationships, and a company’s return on investment (ROI). This book is divided into 9 sections and a total of 28 chapters. Each section culminates with a summary of each section. The textbook is followed by three workbooks: one each for contracting, logistics, and reverse logistics. The workbooks provide case studies, questions, and essays for each case study, while chapters are concluded with proposed weekly discussion questions, sample test/quiz questions for each chapter. These chapter questions could be used to populate potential final exams.
