Program management is recognized as the vehicle of choice for delivering strategic objectives through projects and other corollary actions, including organizational change. The combination of program practices with Disciplined Agile now enables the successful delivery of value in complex and fluid environments. 

This course is built on more than 25 years of international program management practice consolidated in the second edition of the book "Program Management" by Michel Thiry. The course is aligned with recognized program management standards. 

This seminar provides a clear understanding of the link between the strategic objectives of the company and the management of multiple stakeholders, beyond the simple management of multiple projects. The course includes a review of the program management context, a maturity analysis and an overview of the main functions of program management: strategic alignment; stakeholder engagement; governance; benefits management; decision management and change management.
