Programs, by their nature, are complex. Multiple resources, working on multiple projects, with multiple deliverables can lead to conflicts, missed deadlines, cost overruns, and increased risk.
Effective program management eliminates surprise. All projects have problems. Open, honest communication across project teams and with senior management dramatically increases project transparency and reduces the impact of unexpected issues.
Project co-dependencies create additional challenges. Accurate and realistic scheduling, combined with a clear understanding of scope, improve the program & project team’s overall recognition of project goals and deliverables, and provide built-in controls.
