Program Management by Business as an Art

A program is “a group of related projects managed in a coordinated manner to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually.

According to the PMI, a program is “a group of related projects managed in a coordinated manner to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually.” Programs often:

  • Have strategic business objectives that are transformational in nature
  • Cross departments or business units

Program management is the translation of strategic objectives into measurable business outcomes, coupled with the integration of the many related initiatives required for the outcome to be realized.

The program manager also has responsibility for:

  • Prioritizing and funding initiatives
  • Defining a cross-organizational roadmap
  • Ensuring resource capacity and availability
  • Managing interdependencies between projects
  • Ensuring that program-level goals are achieved

Program managers often report into an Enterprise PMO or Strategic Planning Office and have responsibility for managing strategic initiatives that span departments and business units.

Companies often talk about the projects, but the coordination of parallel projects needs a program management setup that we can deliver to you. It makes an order into the prioritization and responsibility chaos.
