Project and Program Management

When a large project is made up of several other projects that are dependent on each other, it becomes something bigger - a program.

Programs can be further grouped into Portfolios. Often businesses choose to have a similarly related arrangements of project offices.  A Project Management Office (PMO), a Program Management Office (PgMO), and an Enterprise Project Management Office EPMO). Programs can become difficult to manage for one person, so delegating individual projects is often recommended. Similarly with larger projects, stream leads may take over the detailed work of some elements.

Outlining objectives, planning execution, managing operations, and reporting on status are just a few of the functions involved in carrying out a successful program.

Projects are temporary undertakings that generally come with cost, date, and resource constraints. Meanwhile, programs are made up of several underlying projects. Programs normally focus on meeting one overarching goal and business objective.
