Programme Management


I was very satisfied on the program management course.

Project Manager, Philips


The teacher was very nice, as was the venue. Just the actual class room was a bit sub optimal. Maybe they have better rooms in the same house, with the beamer better centred.

Learn to thrive as a successful programme manager and implement business strategy through a portfolio of projects.

The role of the programme manager has evolved today from managing multiple projects to implementing high level business strategy through an integrated portfolio of projects. This often involves multiple teams of professionals and executive level stakeholders. As a programme manager you need to have a firm grasp of project management but also a set of business, marketing and leadership skills that differ vastly from the project manager. Participants will focus not only technical competence, but also the ability to develop a big picture strategy, with a clear focus on delivering benefits aligned with the organisation’s goals and objectives.
