Course Description

All organisations and companies undergo continuous change and improvement as a natural process. Programmes represent major change. They are typically complex, difficult and carry substantial risk. Programme Management provides a framework for managing such change. It provides a sound basis for managing collections of related projects that deliver change and benefits to the business.

Programmes involve many parts of an enterprise and can consume a great deal of valuable resources. The impact of not managing them successfully could be considerable. Programmes require effective management to be successful.

This course will give delegates a sound understanding of the principles of effective and successful Programme Management.
