Increasingly, projects form part of an overall change programme. These change programmes are the vehicles that deliver an organisations strategic direction. The ability to break the change programme into clearly defined individual projects, with well understood interdependencies is a highly sought after skill.
Programme management is a framework for implementing strategic change and new initiatives by identifying and managing multiple projects in a structured way.
Programme management relies on strong project management, but concentrates on the benefits that these projects will ultimately deliver.
