The Essence of Program Management


By Professor Peter Pao

An Abstract: Program management is where the robber meets the road, and where the company’s strategies are implemented. Program managers are where companies develop their next generation leaders, and where executives first learn their traits on general management.

How does a program manager:

  • Meet the seemingly impossible schedule and budget?
  • Meet, better yet, exceed customer’s ever growing requirements?
  • Keep “the team” motivated (always)?
  • See the problem before it becomes a bottle neck that chokes the whole program execution?

Professor Pao has had a successful career in industry with 20 years of program management experience. He will share with you what he has learned along the way.
