The larger and more complex the efforts, the more difficult to tackle internally. When it comes to delivering software elements, new business models, or organizational changes in structure, meeting your goals may require several parallel projects, and your current system for "traditional" project management might fall short.
Consequently, many IT professionals are turning to the substantial body of experience, and the smaller body of documentation, that supports the discipline of program management. This discipline encompasses principles, strategies, and results for managing large-scale efforts made up of smaller projects.
5 Major Aspects of Program Management
- Governance: Defining roles and responsibilities, and providing oversight
- Management: Planning and administering both projects and the overall program
- Financial management: Implementation of specific fiscal practices and controls
- Infrastructure: The program office, technology, and other factors in the work environment supporting the program effort
- Planning: Activities that take place at multiple levels, with different goals. The program plan is not a traditional plan
