Program management is not just like project management and it is not more of the same. There are additional dimensions in program management and the owners have different expertise and focus than in project management. There is a strong focus on vision development, benefit management ensuring strategy fit. There is room for change management and it is not all about delivering tangibles.
Successful transformational change requires people to move and take on new ways of working. It requires Individual change with focus on behavioral change, cognitive change and also eye for the emotions an individual can live with in a changing environment. It also requires special interest for Team change and how teams can work effectively, how they are subject to evolution and what different type of teams exist and how they can engender change. It requires Organizational change and recognition of the different types of organizations such as political, mechanistic, organism or flux and transformation like organizations and their characteristics. Last but not least it is important to focus on the type of Leadership that can then be applied.
Having a proper view on available budgets and capacity on one hand, and a view on the targeted projects and programs on the other hand is key in Portfolio management. It allows you to find the right balance in taking priorities to execute a strategy.
