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:
- 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.
