Course Description

Fundamentals of Programme Management

Public Servants are faced with increasing expectations, shifting priorities as well as an increasingly complex, ambiguous and uncertain environment. Delivering government strategy requires a capability in project, programme and portfolio management.

This Programme Management Fundamentals course focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities of delivering complex programmes in the public sector. It draws on the unique insight and networks that the IPA brings to public sector project and programme management.

In addition to the management and co-ordination of multiple projects within a programme, programme management aligns projects with the organisation’s goals, maximises project performance and minimises risk. Course content is aligned with the PMI® The Standard for Program Management – Fourth Edition (2017). This is the definitive guide for individuals and organisations wishing to develop their programme management practices.

  • Introduction to Programme Management
  • Programme Management in the Irish Public Sector
  • Programme Strategy Alignment
  • Programme Lifecycle Management
  • Programme Benefits Management
  • Programme Stakeholder Engagement
  • Programme Governance
  • Key Processes, Tools and Techniques
  • Personal Action Planning

This course is led by an experienced project and programme manager and trainer and will use a variety of approaches during the course including presentations, discussion groups, and group exercises.
