Program managers are, above all else, change agents. Their roles have evolved in most organizations from that of managing multiple projects to implementing business strategy through an integrated portfolio of projects involving the management of multiple teams and executive-level stakeholders. As such, the program manager today requires a refined set of business and leadership skills that are vastly different from that of a project manager. Yet, being an effective program manager generally requires a firm foothold in project management. To many, program management is the next logical step in the career progression of one of the world's fastest growing disciplines.
This course includes an integrated case study that will provide you with the opportunity to walk through the entire life cycle of a program while facing the types of realistic challenges you will surely encounter. You'll learn tools and techniques for program governance, effectively managing stakeholders and ensuring that your program realizes its benefits and strategic objectives. You will learn "real-life" best practices presented and facilitated by instructors who have "been there, done that".Course Topics

ctc TrainCanada - We Never Cancel*:
We are unique in the corporate training field in that we do not cancel desktop applications courses due to low enrollment. When there are less than 3 students, ctc TrainCanada will personalize the class (students then receive more time with the instructor to address their individual needs allowing the student to complete the full course in less time) or connect the student remotely to a class at one of our other branches via TrainLive remote classroom instruction. *Microsoft Certified Courses and other technical courses require a minimum enrollment of three students. Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training. Selected Desktop Applications courses may require a minimum enrollment of two students to run. ctc TrainCanada® reserves the right to deliver Microsoft Certified and other technical courses via TrainLive remote classroom instruction in order to guarantee the course to run.
