Program managers are, above all else, change agents. Their role has evolved in most organizations from that of managing multiple projects to implementing business strategy through an integrated portfolio of projects involving the management of multiple teams and executive-level stakeholders. As such, the program manager today requires a refined set of business and leadership skills that are vastly different from that of a project manager. Yet, being an effective program manager generally requires a firm foothold in project management. To many, program management is the next logical step in the career progression of one of the world’s fastest growing disciplines.
Using real-life case studies, experienced project, business and technical managers will learn how to succeed as program manager by focusing on what makes them successful. Numerous studies that provide valuable information on what makes program managers successful are referenced in this course. To be sure, success is not based on technical competence; rather, it is business savvy, leadership and communication skills that separate the winners from the losers.
You will gain practical tools and techniques designed to get you up to speed quickly. This “real- life” information, directly from the trenches and facilitated by instructors who have “been there, done that”.
