Careers in Project & Programme Management
Project and Programme Managers are crucial for organizations wanting to increase their rentability and organizational efficiency, and to achieve their goals on time. So, finding the right individuals for Project Management and Programme Management jobs within data programmes, together with Business Data Analysts and Agile Data Analysts, is crucial too.
Although roles are often fluid, Project Managers are typically in charge of the processes of; planning, executing, monitoring / controlling and closing a project, to ensure it reaches its objectives. Programme Managers, on the other hand, orchestrate the management of multiple projects and operate strategic changes: delivering ongoing outcomes and business benefits.
Where an organization operates Agile practices, these Project Manager and Programme Manager roles will often be replaced – or their scope reduced – by Product Owners and Scrum Masters. Their experience will lie in areas such as Agile, Kanban, Jira and Scrum, whereas methodologies such as Prince 2 are more commonly adopted in Waterfall approaches.
Whatever the approach, successful candidates in this field will need a strong business head, a drive to deliver outcomes, and a natural talent for bringing together teams and stakeholders.
