Organizations initiate programs to help them achieve their goals and provide the greatest benefit to their stakeholders. The Standard for Program Management — Second Edition is the resource for helping program managers find the best means of achieving those goals and driving organizational success.

The Standard for Program Management — Second Edition provides a detailed understanding of program management and promotes efficient and effective communication and coordination among various project management groups

The Standard for Program Management is an important and essential link in understanding how to drive the strategy of the organization by enhancing the delivery capabilities of interrelated components. It also provides information on program management that is clear, complete, relevant and generally recognized as good practices on most programs, most of the time.

Published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), The Standard for Program Management — Second Edition provides guidelines for managing programs within an organization. This standard is an expansion of information in and a companion to the information provided in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide®) — Fourth Edition.

The standard has been updated to reflect the global practices of both processes and knowledge areas. Updates include:

  • Nine chapters describing one knowledge area each has been added to map the five process groups.
  • The glossary has been expanded and updated to clarify meaning, improve the quality and accuracy of any translations, and include new terms that need to be defined to support an understanding of program management.
  • Detailed descriptions of the relationships and interactions between program, portfolio and project management have been included.

With the ability to help assess the variety of factors linking projects under one program and provide the best allotment of resources between those projects, the standard is an invaluable tool for program, project and portfolio managers alike, as well as project stakeholders and senior managers.

The Standard for Program Management

by Roland Buresund last modified 2017-01-20 14:22

Rating: ***** (OK)

Well, I worked in standards (X/Open, IEEE, etc) and I know how standards tends to develop. With that said, this (pretty boring) book could have been a lot worse!

It covers the authors (subjective) views of what should be in Program Management, and it does it decently. Unfortunately I don't always agree :-)

Read it for what it is: a decent overview of techniques and thinking about Program Management, but don't expect to have any AHA-experience from it.
