Program management is the process of managing several related projects, often with the intention of improving an organization's performance. In practice and in its aims it is often closely related to systems, business and industrial engineering.
The program manager has oversight of the purpose and status of the projects in a program and can use this oversight to support project-level activity to ensure the program goals are met by providing a decision-making capacity that cannot be achieved at project level or by providing the project manager with a program perspective when required, or as a sounding board for ideas and approaches to solving project issues that have program impacts.
In a program there is a need to identify and manage cross-project dependencies and often the project management office (PMO) may not have sufficient insight of the risk, issues, requirements, design or solution to be able to usefully manage these.
Our skilled program managers will be well placed to provide this insight by actively seeking out such information from the project managers although in large and/or complex projects, a specific role may be required.
Our resources are skilled in identification and management of risks of projects and programs running in a public sector environment. Our solid knowledge and awareness of working in a political environment, public sector regulations and governance, and market and commercial awareness, together with the ability to work across the sectors with multi disciplinary partners is complimentary to the working knowledge of program management.
