Project and Program Management
The effective management of the projects and programs authorized by the organization's governance processes to deliver the objectives defined in each project/program's Charter.
Program management is the management of a number of projects and other work in a coordinated way so as to achieve efficiencies and benefits that may otherwise not be achieved, and are focused on achieving outcomes and beneficial change.
Programs may be created for a number of different purposes, but always involve the coordinated initiation, management and closure of a number of projects to achieve a unified purpose. Program management is an executive function; the program manager manages other managers, primarily project managers.
The efficient management of a project to achieve the outputs and goals defined in the project Charter through the application of processes defined in standards such as ISO 21500 and the PMBOK® Guide.
