A Mastery Experience Workshop™ for Business Leaders and Program Managers

More strategic than projects, an organization's Programs are closely aligned to it╩╝s strategy and must be structured to be effective across businesses, functions, and if needed, global regions.

Succeeding with Programs™ is designed to demonstrate how programs strategically serve the organization, and to help business leaders leverage what they already know about project management, leadership, and change in order to succeed with programs.

Many workshop topics have relevance outside the realm of Program and Project Management, giving participants an opportunity to sharpen their general leadership and change skills.
