Program Management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives.
The primary challenge of Program Management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while adhering to classic project constraints - scope, quality, time, and budget. The secondary and more ambitious challenge is to optimize the allocation and integration of inputs necessary to meet pre-defined objectives.
JBA projects are a carefully defined set of activities that use resources (people, technology, and processes) to achieve the project goals and objectives.
Program Management comprises two or more projects. A project is a finite endeavor - having specific start and completion dates - undertaken to create a unique product or service which brings about beneficial change or added value.
This finite characteristic of projects stands in sharp contrast to processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent functional work to repetitively produce the same product or service. In practice, the management of these two systems is often found to be quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and the adoption of a separate management philosophy.
JBA's Program Management approach determines and implements the exact needs of the client, based on knowledge of the industry and technologies employed. The ability to adapt to the various internal procedures and constraints of the projects is essential in ensuring that the key issues of cost, time, quality, and above all, client satisfaction, are realized.
