Corporate Governance Transformation Diploma
 
Management of Change
Corporate perspective to govern and manage evolving agile change
 
The emergence of programme management as a distinct discipline reflects project management's strength and appeal as much as its shortcomings. As the number and complexity of the challenges facing organizations has grown so has the tendency to adopt project management as the preferred vehicle for change. As the traditional techniques and structures have been flexed and adapted to cope with uncertainty, multiple-related goals and the speed of change, something quite distinct has sprung up; programme management. The techniques and approaches which are at the core of programme management as a discipline are not well documented or established, yet are being practiced tentatively by managers.
 
Because of its origins and the multiple needs it serves, programme management exhibits as much variation as commonality. None the less, a core can be discerned and it is clear that programme management offers significant potential for the next millennium. Extracting the full benefits will require a recognition of the uniqueness and distinctiveness of programme management; without this recognition there will remain a tendency to leverage inappropriate project concepts and overlook or even stifle the nascent programme level concepts. 
 
Management of valued changes helps deliver more of the right things, for less and leads to more effective use of available resources. When times are good, the demand is to deliver more with less to remain competitive. In leaner times, the demands are for cutting costs in a manner that inflicts as little harm as possible. In some circumstances, value may be added by stopping certain activities or projects. This diploma provides a way of addressing changes in an objective and auditable manner aligned with cost benefits risk governance model.
