Program Management

Program management is a critical function if organisations are going to maximise the return on their investment in projects.  Program management is more than simply ‘project management with bigger numbers’, it is a more complex discipline that should be much more strategically and organisationally focused than project management.

By definition a program is a collection of related projects, usually with a common goal, and from a management perspective this creates a unique set of challenges and opportunities.  Program management needs to manage the ‘big picture’ and ensure that resources are utilised as efficiently as possible, cross project dependencies are identified and controlled, common risks are mitigated and contingencies are in place, etc.

A strong program management function will help to create project synergy where the value of the program to the company is much greater than simply the success of the constituent projects.

Roffensian’s program management services include the following:

· Planning of programs and their constituent projects, including resources, dependencies, timelines, functionality and costs.  This includes identification of bottlenecks, over and under utilisation, etc, and action plans to manage those threats and opportunities

· Management of programs on either an interim basis or for the program duration

· Program recovery of ‘in trouble’ initiatives, together with comprehensive analysis of root causes and prevention plans for future programs

· Program effectiveness audits of both the program and its deliverables

· Tools, templates and techniques for managing and tracking program process and ensuring consistency across constituent projects

· Coaching and mentoring of program management staff
