PMI’s Definition of Program Manager
Program Manager
Under minimal supervision, program managers are responsible and accountable for the
coordinated management of multiple related projects directed toward strategic business and other
organizational objectives. These programs contain complex activities that may span functions,
organizations, geographic regions, and cultures. Program managers build credibility, establish
rapport, and maintain communication with stakeholders at multiple levels, including those external
to the organization.
Program managers define and initiate projects, and assign Project Managers to manage cost,
schedule, and performance of component projects, while working to ensure the ultimate success
and acceptance of the program. Program managers maintain continuous alignment of program
scope with strategic business objectives, and make recommendations to modify the program to
enhance effectiveness toward the business result or strategic intent. Program managers are
responsible for determining and coordinating the sharing of resources among their constituent
projects to the overall benefit of the program.
Program managers possess the knowledge and skills needed to be effective in both the project
and business or government environments, and to make decisions that accomplish strategic
objectives. In addition, the program manager should have advanced skills in finance, crosscultural awareness, leadership, communication, influence, negotiation, and conflict resolution.
Here are the eligibility requirements for the program manager meeting:
Minimum of 35 hours of formal project/program management education, and
At least 4 years of project management experience, and
At least 4 years of program management experience.
