Project/Programme Management

Project and programme management involves the planning, executing, and overseeing of projects or programmes to achieve specific objectives within a set timeframe and budget.

While projects are temporary endeavors with a clear beginning and end, programmes are collections of related projects managed in a coordinated way to achieve strategic objectives.
Efficient project and programme management is the cornerstone of successful initiatives. Effective project and programme management ensures that initiatives are completed successfully, delivering the intended value and benefits to stakeholders.

Project/Programme Management Phases

Initiation
  • This phase involves defining the project or programme at a high level. Key activities include developing a business case, conducting feasibility studies, and identifying key stakeholders. This sets the groundwork for project planning and approval.
Planning
  • In this phase, detailed plans are created to guide the project/programme execution. This includes defining objectives, scope, timelines, resources, budget, and risk management strategies. The goal is to create a roadmap that ensures all aspects are covered and aligns with the overall strategy.
Execution
  • This phase is where the work gets done. Resources are allocated, tasks are performed, and deliverables are created according to the project plan. Effective execution requires strong coordination and communication among team members and stakeholders.
Monitoring, controlling and evaluation
  • Continuous tracking of the project/programmes progress against the plan is crucial. This involves performance
    measurement, identifying variances, and implementing corrective actions to ensure the project stays on track.
Closure
  • Once the project/programme objectives are met, this phase involves finalizing all activities, obtaining stakeholder approvals, and formally closing the project. Lessons learned are documented, and a post-implementation review is conducted to assess the outcomes and impact.
