About the Programme

The role of the programme manager has evolved today from managing multiple projects to implementing high level business strategy through an integrated portfolio of projects. This often involves multiple teams of professionals and executive level stakeholders. As a programme manager you need to have a firm grasp of project management but also a set of business, marketing and leadership skills that differ vastly from the project manager. Participants will focus not only technical competence, but also the ability to develop a big picture strategy, with a clear focus on delivering benefits aligned with the organisation’s goals and objectives.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Increase the effectiveness of an organisation’s approach to programme management
  • Initiate and organise a large-scale programme to implement business strategy
  • Manage stakeholder relationships effectively
  • Manage, execute and control a successful programme consisting of multiple, related projects
  • Establish and implement programme governance to ensure consistent alignment with organisational strategy
  • Ensure the realisation of programme benefits
