This Program Management Workshop addresses the essential aspects of the five (5) Program
Management Performance Domains: Program Strategy Alignment, Program Benefits Management,
Program Stakeholder Engagement, Program Governance, and Program Life Cycle Management, and the
Supporting Processes that are consistent with PMI’s The Standard for Program Management (4th Edition © 2017).
The Workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of a “Program” as opposed to a

processes for managing a Program. Program managers looking to improve their leadership skills and
improve their understanding of how to manage their Programs should take this Workshop as should
students on a track to take the Program Management Professional (PgMP®) Certification exam.
