Programme Manager as a Movie Director
December, 2020 – Guy Thorpe – (2 min read)
People often misunderstand or misinterpret the PPM roles and their accountabilities. Recently I was trying to simply explain to a client the role of Programme Manager during business change using real-life terms such as that of a Motion Picture Movie Director.
The Programme Manager much like a Movie Director looks to materialise the vision of the Programme Sponsor, and Executive Producers, who works with multiple #Project Teams in creating the desired “outcomes” that will optimise the realisation of stated financial #benefits used in options analysis, investment appraisal and the #portfoliomanagement process.
Sometimes it’s important to see all the interconnected parts in real life to better understand how industry best practices should be applied.
