Program Management                            Printable Brochure

Program Management is often the missing link between Portfolio Management and Project Management – where potentially synergistic results get lost because no entity is managing the myriad of projects in a structured and strategic fashion. This seminar offers an understanding of program management’s connection to portfolio management (business strategy and objectives), and discusses the capabilities needed to create a system for multiple-project management. Additionally, it emphasizes the need for program specific processes, based on an iterative life cycle and the management of multiple stakeholders and their expected benefits.
