What is Program Management Professional (PgMP®) Certification?

Being a program manager means you are a senior-level practitioner shaping and delivering important initiatives that advance your organisation’s strategic goals. Companies with mature Program Management practices report greater delivery success than those without them Gaining your Program Management Professional (PgMP®) certification means you join an exclusive club that recognises your knowledge, skills and ability to manage Programs and separates you from the ranks of the 640,000 certified Project Management Professionals (PMP®) in the world.
There are less than 1,400 certified PgMP® practitioners. This small community are advocates for best practice program management ensuring that programs realise benefits for the business.
Certification increases your visibility, value and contribution to the organisation and the PgMP® preparation course is the first step to become certified.

Why Program Management?

There is a paradigm shift you must go through to become a PgMP. The starting point is to understand the differences between Portfolios, Programs and Projects because each are different in their own right and they sit at different levels in the organsiation.
  • Programs are a means of achieving organizational goals and objectives, often in the context of a strategic plan while ‘Projects’ are a means of achieving tactical goals and objectives.
  • Programs are responsible for delivering outcomes (benefits, new capabilities) whereas projects are primarily responsible for delivering solutions or products that enable the outcomes to be achieved.
  • Programs focus on Benefits, Stakeholder Engagement and Governance while projects focus on Scope, cost and time.

After completing the 4 day PgMP® preparation course you will be very clear on what program management is. You will be able to explain how it is different from project management. More importantly you will immediately be able to recognise if your current workload is a project or program and apply the tools form the course to be more effective.
