Program management doesn't simply entail managing interrelated projects-rather; it’s about managing programs to maximize benefits realization while ensuring that programs (and their components) align with organizational strategy and overall strategic objectives. Whether you’re new to the field or a seasoned practitioner, this course offers a hands-on approach to program management.
The course contains an integrated case study and walks participants through the life cycle of a typical program, identifying critical success factors at each step in the process. In addition to the latest insights from PMI's Standard for Program Management, 3rd Edition, and Managing Success Programmes (MSP), this course is packed with practical application tools, techniques and best practices for managing programs. You’ll learn to initiate a program, develop a solid business case, manage stakeholders at all levels, develop a detailed roadmap (including program and governance plans), and define key deliverables and outputs needed for realizing program benefits. You’ll also manage change and program challenges and close out the program effectively.
