When it comes to ‘project management’ and ‘program management’, organizations need to be aware that there are significant differences between them. The best practices, skills, and levels of experience required for project and program managers are distinct. In short, if a company wants to enjoy the full benefits of both, they must be aware of the differences between project and program management.
