Programme Management Training

MAKE AN ENQUIRY Download Course Outline

Sometimes the work needed to achieve a key organisational objective will be far greater than can be easily organised & carried out in a single project. As a result the organisation will undertake a programme that consists of a number of inter-related projects.

Programme Management is the co-ordinated management of a portfolio of projects to achieve a set of objectives. Programme Management provides the framework for implementing business strategies and initiatives and for managing a number of multiple projects.

This one-day Programme Management training course, taught in the style of a workshop, trains you in the process, methods and skills required to manage a programme, and to deliver the expected benefits from the programme.

If you wish to gain a formal qualification in Programme Management, then our MSP Training courses may be more appropriate for you.

We also provide private and in-company Programme Management courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.
