Event Details

Event Description:

What’s it like to do Program Management for a 2-year, 200-resource software rewrite with global resources? How important are standards, policies and procedures when you’re corralling 30 Project Managers with cross-project dependencies?


Aviva Carmen, PMP, will talk about “One Year in the Life of a Program Manager”.

Managing a major design and rewrite for a website which attracts millions of users is no small task …

  • During the life of the program, how do you make sure the project schedules are kept accurate and up-to-date? 
  • How can you easily get cross-project reporting? 
  • How do you get Project Manager buy-in to all the accountability changes? 

Join us as Aviva shares with us, in her engaging and humorous style, some of the tricks of the program management trade she has used in the past at a major financial institution.
