We had fun trying to demonstrate some of reasons why programme management is important in organisations running multiple projects. Check out our little animation!
It's all too common for organisations and teams to have multiple projects on and staff still trying to still do their normal business as usual tasks. Getting a view of all those projects, who is involved and what is required of them helps businesses decide what projects are most important and can be done and when they can be done. It also helps with resource planning and staff retention!
Over the years we have seen many organisations try and put in programme management with little success, for different reasons; perhaps their leadership aren't that in to it, the process is way too much, it creates too much burden on the projects. The common outcome is everyone (from CEO down) start trying to get around the PMO. The way you introduce your programme management is as crucial as to what you do to manage those projects and programmes.

What's the solution to all these problems? Is it a new project management style? Would Agile fix it? Would PRINCE2 fix it? That latest project management or team management software?
Well, yes and no.
All those things help but on their own none of them are going to stop big problems from happening. We believe it comes down to three critical ingredients:
