Expertise to fully develop, initiate and manage your programs.
Major programs frequently comprise multiple, interdependent projects. Our Program Management helps find the thread to link all of your related projects together and maximize the program's overall benefits. By managing all projects together as part of a cohesive program, we identify and manage any interdependencies, improve resource utilization, mitigate risk and help you successfully implement your strategy.
We offer a Program Management capability, which consists of:
- a formal Program Management methodology called Visionary based on the Project Management Institute (PMI) Program Management Standard
- experienced program managers
- interlinked Project and Program Management capabilities
- global deployment
- benefits & ROI management
- vision/strategy development
The scope of Program Management goes well beyond the boundaries of managing individual projects. By linking project and program management, you can efficiently and cost-effectively deploy your strategy, while maintaining control of project interdependencies and program benefits. This assures that your strategy is successfully implemented and your visions are achieved.
what it does
Changes can include major procurement and implementation activities, creating a new organization from a merger, acquisition or restructuring. All of these initiatives would benefit from the application of program management tools and techniques and are usually products of an organization's strategic direction. Organizations respond to drivers for change by developing strategies which are then implemented through programs and, ultimately, the projects and other activities they coordinate.

how it works
the Visionary experience
We use a thorough methodology - Visionary - designed to help the Program Manager provide consistency in program delivery. Visionary is compatible with our project management methodology, Synergy, and with other existing Orange processes, procedures and structures wherever possible.
Visionary is in line with industry-recognized best practices, as exemplified in the British Office of Government Controls (OGC), Managing Successful Programs Standard, and the Project Management Institute Program Management standard.
This framework provides:
- experienced program managers,
- vision and strategy development,
- project and program management capabilities,
- global deployment,
- project integration and dependency management,
- benefits management.
Program Management can help to increase return on investment by providing a formal means to address stakeholders, governance and benefits management, while providing resource and scheduling efficiencies. As projects are managed holistically, benefits can be prioritized and executed in line with your strategy, budget and schedule.
how Program Management can help
|where high-level policy or strategic objectives are difficult to define||to clearly specify outcomes and break activity down into manageable chunks|
|where there is complexity or large-scale change||to coordinate activities across multiple specialties, business units or organizations, while managing senior stakeholders|
|where resources are scarce||to set priorities and resolve conflicts. To focus on those projects and activities that will deliver the strategic objectives|
|where there is potential for common activities or products across more than one project||to identify and exploit opportunities for sharing|
|where there is the probability of change during the program||to provide flexible information flows and facilitate top-down, well-informed decision-making so that appropriate adjustments can be made|
|where there is uncertainty||to provide a framework for communication and to promote common values and shared responsibilities so as to foster collaboration from all parties involved|
|where there is potential to deliver a series of outcomes||to maximize positive outcomes, minimize negative outcomes and realize prioritized benefits early|
|where there is a requirement for overall improvement||to align and coordinate a range of continuous improvements to business operations and services|
|where there is a high degree of risk||to manage, monitor and reduce the risk to acceptable levels without impeding the successful implementation of the program|
In addition,Program Management also provides:
- the coordinated and integrated management of projects under a program framework to increase efficiency,
- monitoring and control based on a phased approach,
- reduced risk by applying a formal program management methodology and techniques,
- transitional planning to get you where you want to be,
- integrated quality management.
