What you'll learn in this project management training:

Organizations and governments are constantly looking at achieving new strategic goals in the form of creating new product lines, new capabilities and new services. These are undertaken as new initiatives which are expected to not only create the new product or services, but also are expected to deliver desired benefits. Program Management ensures that these new initiatives truly become successful.

Large initiatives (programs) are broken down into number of projects, each project delivering incremental benefit to the organization. Breaking down such initiatives or goals into a number of projects makes it easier to manage.Programs are an umbrella structure that allows one to manage a group of projects in a coordinated way to gain greater benefit than what could be achieved from managing the projects separately.

A program manager’s role is indispensable in an organization; part of the reason why program managers are highly coveted and command huge salaries. The average Program Manager salary in the United States is between $110,142 and $146,946. In this time of economic uncertainty organizations need talent that can help them successfully complete projects.
