Programmes are a critical vehicle for realising corporate strategy; good programme managers sit in the driving seat!

You may be in your organisation's C-Suite currently, or you may have upward mobility to be in the future. Regardless of where you are today, you are already empowered to be the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for your programme (and/or project).

Bestselling author Ms. Irene Didinsky, author of the PMI endorsed 2017 released 'Practioner's Guide to Program Management' walked through her ideology and framework for programme management, and how to mirror the impact, accountability and investment in your programme that a CEO has in their company.
