Who is a Program Manager?

A program is a collection of various projects connected with each other towards a specific common goal. A program manager shoulders the responsibility of multiple related projects and oversees their strategies and success. Evidently, program management demands an exceptional acumen in managerial abilities and coordination besides excellence in project management. A program manager possesses significant experience in the industry, communicates effectively and is adept in cross-functional collaboration.

Acute and smooth coordination in the management of interrelated projects has proven to be more lucrative and successful than an individually supervised project. 76% of the projects are successful under program management while only 54% projects succeed under individual management.
