Program & Project Management
Program management is “the process of managing several related projects, often with the intention of improving an organization’s performance”.
There are two different views of how programs differ from projects. The first view is that projects produce output, small parts that make up the whole, whereas programs create outcomes, the impact of completing something. The other view is that programs are just a large project or a group of projects.
The project manager is concerned with making sure their project succeeds and that it is done right. On the other hand the program manager is primarily concerned with doing the right projects and keeping the big picture in mind.
To achieve maximum benefits, there must be an integration of both these parts into a whole. Whether this integration is managed by something that is called a project or a program is of little importance to understanding the benefits and managing the process of integration well.
