Program Management introduces the strategic framework within which programs and projects operate, their distinctive principles and how these are applied at project level. The framework addresses both the content side – i.e., what does one need to know in order to participate in or lead a project in the 2014-2020 period – and the skills side – i.e., which tools and techniques will enable partners and programs to work closer together and be better prepared to seize the opportunities and challenges of the projects.
The purpose of the framework is to enable project teams to manage their projects effectively and deliver solutions and benefits to their organizations and stakeholders.
Going step-by-step through the stages of the project cycle, it will be possible to understand what key actions, success factors and critical aspects a project partner will face while embarking on a project. By following the framework, project developers will get practical tips and advice from the company, on every stage, from idea generation, partnership and application development, through contracting, starting-up and implementation to project closure.
