CMI Unit 604 Strategic Programme and Project Management
Strategic programme and project management is a valuable skill for a professional manager and leader to develop. Whilst a project is singular, programmes will encompass a range of projects. The reality of managing programmes and projects is complicated. There are a broad range of multi-dimensional issues which influence how these are led; not least the impact of stakeholder involvement, financing, resourcing and appetite for risk. Ultimately, the success of a programme or project is judged on the achievement of goals within the parameters of cost, quality, resources used and timescales.
