Course description

Program Management

Projects are about specific deliverables. Focusing on that outcome is the project manager’s main goal—but a program manager coordinates a number of related projects and operations that will benefit his or her organization. As an integral part of the organization's strategic business, you, as program manager, must apply very specialized skills, knowledge, and tools to exercise a degree of control that would not be possible by managing projects individually. In this course, you will build the skills and best practices needed to successfully manage a program. Learn how to align multiple activities to reach a strategic goal, report to and engage stakeholders, and satisfy all of the very specific and exacting demands of the program manager’s role.
