Program Management Planning

Program Initiation

Let’s get organized around the requirements and define your program. We know that managing large programs includes a lot of moving parts, numerous stakeholders, and countless assets. We’ll agree on a run book to make sure that we follow the plan, allocate resources, and define milestones toward your success.

Program Execution

Kick Off – Now that we’ve decided on a plan, let’s get going. This is one of the most vital phases in our program management framework. In this phase we agree on your deliverables and present them. Once the agreement is signed, we proceed with the kickoff both internally and externally. Internally we determine allocated resources, processes, vendors, and schedules. We then present these decisions on the external kickoff and talk about how we’ll execute project deliverables and produce outcomes to meet your objectives.
