Program fundamentals

Program management, writes this article's author, a program director for the engineering and construction firm Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) (Surrey, United Kingdom), "is about managing a group of projects in a coordinated way to deliver benefits that would not be possible if the projects were independently managed." This article discusses the fundamentals of KBR's enterprise-wide method for practicing program management. In doing so, it identifies the eleven components comprising KBR's program management method and the primary benefits it has realized from using a standardized program management approach. It lists the three focus areas of KBR's method and explains KBR's process for implementing its method. It also overviews an actual program that KBR implemented for a United Kingdom healthcare agency.
