Successfully Managing Programs - 2PDUs

Managing programs is not like managing projects.  While there are certainly some parallels, program management is its own discipline.  In this workshop you’ll learn the responsibilities of the program manager and how to run a successful program.

What is a program?  Here’s PMBOK’s definition: “A group of related projects, subprograms, and program activities managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually.”   Come join us and add program management to your tool kit.
