Program Management book
The program director is responsible for ensuring the flawless implementation of the stakeholder’s program. Working with the core program team and the extended team, the program director works to define and implement the stakeholder’s program. There are certain major components to the cost of a program. Some, like equipment, engineering, and installation, are well known and well understood. One of the most important functions performed by program management, as opposed to project management, is the overall integration function. There are two key areas for setting stakeholder expectations: the initial phase of the program and the collection of functions during the ordering, implementation, and integration phases of the projects and program. A program could easily be a major renovation of a healthcare facility planned to occur over an extended period, or it could be a healthcare facility’s Five-Year Plan to become the area’s leading transplant facility.
