What is a Programme?
A program is more than a collection of projects towards a common goal:
1. First, a program consists of various and different activities, some of which are projects.
2. But there will also be other activities such as improvisations and unplanned processes concerning change, negotiations, conflict management, consulting and decision making that have an unpredictable outcome and therefor cannot be embedded in a project.
3. Most program managers will also manage routine processes temporarily, such as a program support office or a key department.
