Programme Management is a structured way to implement corporate strategy through business change. A programme combines deliveries from multiple projects with revised attitudes and ways of working to yield verifiable improvements in business performance.To be successful, a programme needs to pursue a vision consistent with the strategic goals of the organisation, to establish a clear blueprint for the projects, and to drive the realisation of business benefits. The programme manager is the organising spider in the web, and adopts a role very different from that of a conventional project manager.Compared with Project Management, Programme Management requires skills in getting other people in various parts of the organisation to manage the necessary changes. As a programme manager, you rely on vision, empathy, and the art of ‘selling’ the desired state and all activities needed to get there, whilst not forgetting the rigour needed to manage complex interactions.Training method
In order to get the most benefits from this course, we work in an interactive manner and tailor the contents to the specific interests of the attendees.Therefore, we use several teaching methods: plenary, mostly for presentation, case study, to let participants master the concepts, and group sessions for discussions.
The participants will be provided with a copy of “Managing Successful Programmes” by OCG, Office of Government Commerce. ISBN 978-0-11-331040-1.
