Broaden your frame of reference and implement program management effectively
As organizations mature in their project management initiatives, there comes a natural increase in complexity and sophistication of the project management environment. As more projects compete with increasingly limited resources and grow to support large company initiatives, it becomes critically important to ensure all projects are firmly tied to the organization’s strategic direction. The Cadence Program Management course delivers this perspective.
Understand how program management can deliver strategic benefits to the organization. Learn how to see the “big picture” from the program and strategic level. Discover how to implement a successful program with repeatable processes. Learn techniques to define benefits and track the delivery of those benefits to the organization. The Cadence Program Management course teaches organizations to broaden their frame of reference beyond project management, and implement program management effectively.
