A practical guide to what you need to know
The intent of this book is to summarise what programme management entails. It provides a practical overview and understanding of what programme management is compared to managing a single project or a portfolio of projects. This is done from an owner team perspective.
The book provides guidelines, case study examples, as well as the tools required in all the relevant areas of project and programme management. Programmes are covered from initial inception through to final completion, focusing not only on achieving project objectives, but also on the overall business objectives of the programme. The focus and level of detail required from an owner programme management team are covered.
The book covers programme initiation and shaping, business ethics, obtaining alignment amongst stakeholders, planning, organising and control aspects, communication and nurturing of the team throughout the lifecycle of the programme.
