Program Management & Reporting

Program management or programme management is the process of managing several related projects that together will deliver a stated goal or objective.

Within the program, projects may be added, rescoped or culled in order to achieve the aims of the program that funds them. These projects will typically be run in parallel or be overlapping / staggered and often have interdependencies.

Managers are finding that "traditional" project management approaches fall short for such undertakings. 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 describes principles, strategies, and desirable results for managing large-scale efforts comprising parallel projects.

Program management is aligned with the demands of the Project Management Office.

There are six 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
  • Resourcing: Resources may be required to work on several projects simultaneously, or may need to move to new projects as these projects enter phases matching their skillsets.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) is one of the global standard methodologies developed to address this growing skills need.

MSP offers best-practice guidance to all organizations - large or small, public or private sector - to help them achieve successful outcomes from programme management, time and time again. MSP has been developed to help achieve excellence by improving practices, offering better services and preparing more effectively for the future.
