The complexity of IT initiatives has gone up significantly.  IT Programs (related to product development, as well as services & solution rollouts) are typically complex, and may involve implementing multiple interdependent projects in parallel. Handling such programs involves aligning them with business strategy, managing multiple stakeholders, and ensuring delivery of benefits.  In this context, Program Management competency is becoming critical for organizational success.

In this workshop, participants will gain a perspective of the business context of IT Programs, issues and challenges involved in IT program management, the skills required to successfully manage global IT programs, and how a Program Management Office (PMO) approach can be leveraged to provide governance for successful execution.
