Transitioning to Program Management

New series of articles by program management academy founders launched in September PM World Journal

15 September 2014 – Dallas, London, Sydney – “Transitioning to Program Management” is the theme of a new series of articles launched in the September 2014 edition of the PM World Journal by Russell Martinelli, Tim Rahshulte and Jim Waddell, founders of the Program Management Academy in Oregon, USA. According to the authors in their introductory article, “Program management has been the basis for developing products, services, infrastructure capabilities, and for managing transitional change initiatives for decades. Its use however, has become more wide-spread in recent years. Not surprisingly we have found that how program management is established and practiced can vary greatly.” They add: “Through our careers we have seen that a transition to program management can yield significant improvement in a firm’s ability to achieve its strategic goals, competitive position, and financial results.”

The September PMWJ contains not only their introduction to the series but a first series article titled “The Ah Ha Moment.” Both articles can now be found in the PM World Library.
