Setting Your Program Up for Success

The skills needed for program management can differ significantly from those needed for project management.

Program management is about maximizing the benefits realized with constrained resources in a changing environment; project management is focused on the efficient creation of a defined deliverable.

In this session will address some of the differences between the skillsets, and will identify three of the most essential, while successfully balancing the four inter-related management skills needed for successful program management: project, program, portfolio, and operations.

In this webcast, you will discover the tools to initiate a program successfully in a manner that will enable benefits establishment, realization management, and analysis prior to and during execution.

Lisa Wolf will show you how to set realistic objectives and performance measures. The three key tools for program success we will discuss in this webcast are:

Learn:

  • Creating a program roadmap
  • Identifying what is needed for organizational strategy and program alignment
  • Creating an environmental assessment

These skills are only three key tools for program success, to be used within an entire program lifecycle, but can serve as a foundation for success.

The use of these tools will vary based on the type and complexity of the program; effective and strategic program management can often depend on how well these foundational elements are executed to ensure appropriate program definition, benefits delivery, and closure.

We encourage you to register even if you are unable to attend live; you’ll receive replay information following the event.

Unfortunately, about one out of four development programs fail. Sixty-five percent of those that survive do not achieve all their goals.

A development program or project in trouble is distinct from a program encountering typical development difficulties.

Each day its performance seems to be worse, even when team members do not think it possible. A program or project with this problem can appear to be in free fall.

Thomas (Tom) Pavelko (LinkedIn profile) spent many years at a major aerospace company leading the successful recovery of important development programs.

Tom experienced firsthand what causes programs to stop achieving performance, cost, schedule, and quality commitments.

He refined ways to evaluate these programs, reorganize them to achieve their commitments and resurrect the morale of the team. Tom strives to lead these teams to enter a high state of productivity that he refers to as being “on step”.

In this webinar Tom will pull from the concepts of his new book, Project and Program Turnaround (Best Practices and Advances in Program Management).

Walk away being able to identify the essential fundamentals to execute a program turnaround effectively.

These include:

  • Identifying the critical accomplishment that must be achieved next,
  • Assigning each program responsibility to one person,
  • Capitalizing on colocation and face-to-face communication,
  • Recruiting problem solvers,
  • Establishing team member commitments,
  • Using team accomplishments to propel high team morale
  • And more …

These are necessary to get the program team on step and successful.

The guidance provided in this session is applicable to all program or project genres, including nonprofit work, education, medicine, investment management, municipal management, construction and more.
