Programs represent a collection of related projects. The objective of a program is to produce business results as they have been identified in the Program Vision Statement. The Prioritized Program Backlog includes Product Backlogs for every project within the program. According to the Scrum Body of Knowledge (SBOK), the Program level includes five (5) major processes.

  1. Create Program or Portfolio Components – For programs, this process requires that the Program Product Owner, along with key stakeholders identify the common components and resources that are a need for the program.
