For all that we know about education, and all of the training providers that exist, the training landscape for project managers is surprisingly uniform. There are introductory courses.

Programs serve as a crucial link between strategy and the execution of business results and organizations implement them to achieve strategic goals. Although the practice of program management has evolved in lockstep with the project management profession, the root causes of program failure remain. In this step-by-step guide, Irene Didinsky offers a standardized approach to program management, closing the knowledge gaps and variations that currently exist across organizations and industries. For the first time, The Practitioner’s Guide to Program Management walks the reader through all the key components of effective program management. Using a case study example of an actual process improvement program, Didinsky discusses the qualities of excellence in program leadership, the importance of organizational strategy alignment throughout the program life cycle, how a program realizes benefits, and how to manage conflicting priorities of stakeholders. This comprehensive resource also includes an historical overview of the professionalization of the field, outlines the logistics of forming a program management community of practice, and concludes with a glossary of terms. With this desktop manual in their hands, practitioners can expect to thrive and guarantee the success of their programs.

The road to using artificial intelligence and big data in project management is not straightforward, and there is no need to make the full trip today. Projects are rich in data by nature and use technical, business, schedule, cost and additional types of data on a daily basis. However much of the data that's already in existence is either not being used, partially used or is hard to get to. The trick is not to use all the data available, but ask the right questions and support answers with smart data. A simple maturity model will be presented in this webinar to help project professionals navigate their way through the different options: from projects and organizations that have very little data, through the different project environments. In this interactive webinar, participants will gain knowledge in: 1. Asking the right questions. 2. Assessing data maturity. 3. Making incremental steps for better data use to deliver project benefits, results and deliverables.
