Product Description

PGM Seattle

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. Attendees will evaluate the scope of projects in their organizations and define programs to support them. Through workshops anchored on familiar project management tools, they will develop a framework around program roles and responsibilities, tools, and the infrastructure necessary to support a mature project management environment effectively. Finally, company leaders will learn how to manage relationships with stakeholders across the organization, while maintaining an environment of innovation and productivity.
