Projects and Programs – Pill 014

We all know the definition of a Project and Program. Sometime I hear some definition of program that are quite confusing (and wrong). Below you will find a summary of areas of difference in addition to the general differences (table below).

In a Project the Team – made up of people committed to delivering deliverables – responds to the Project Manager.

In a Program the Team is formed by the Project Managers, who guide their projects and respond to the Program Manager.

Finally, we do not call Program a succession of linked Projects, or – worse – the set of phases of a Project.

Here you can see a generalist table of the main differences between Project and Program that you can find basically everywhere
