Documento di approfondimento al seminario del 27 Gennaio 2011 "La Figura del Programme Manager"
Programmes and programme management are frequently used, especially by large organisations, to
implement complex strategic initiatives. In such cases, programme work transcends the management
of related projects and involves managing the ambiguities of strategy as well as the interpersonal,
cultural and political dynamics operating within organisations. A practical concern at senior
management level is the selection and development of competent programme managers and directors.
To date there has been little useful formal knowledge on the competence entailed in undertaking such
strategic initiatives - frameworks extrapolated from project management are too narrow in their focus
and overly rationalistic.
