Detailed Description:Programs serve as a crucial link between strategy and the execution of business results and organizations implement them to achieve strategic goals. Although the practice of program management has evolved in lockstep with the project management profession, the root causes of program failure remain.

In this step-by-step guide, Irene Didinsky offers a standardized approach to program management, closing the knowledge gaps and variations that currently exist across organizations and industries. For the first time, The Practitioner's Guide to Program Management walks the reader through all the key components of effective program management. Using a case study example of an actual process improvement program, Didinsky discusses the qualities of excellence in program leadership, the importance of organizational strategy alignment throughout the program life cycle, how a program realizes benefits, and how to manage conflicting priorities of stakeholders.

This comprehensive resource also includes an historical overview of the professionalization of the field, outlines the logistics of forming a program management community of practice, and concludes with a glossary of terms. With this desktop manual in their hands, practitioners can expect to thrive and guarantee the success of their programs.

About the Author:
Early in her career, Irene Didinsky recognized that project and program management was her passion. She accepted roles of increasing complexity and responsibility in a broad range of industries, including healthcare, energy, utilities, food and beverages, power tools, and hospitality. Irene led global cross-cultural projects at Deloitte. She delivered programs that implemented value-based care solutions for large healthcare systems at Evolent Health, a healthcare consulting firm. And, she has influenced the delivery of millions of dollars of capital investment through project and program management at Kaiser Permanente.
As there are very few books written about program management, Irene became a writer by night, while working as a program manager. Irene’s enthusiasm for helping people in all aspects of program management flows through in the expert program management knowl¬edge that she has shared in this book. Successful collaboration with the Project Management Institute (PMI) added tremendous value to the book. The book’s content fully attests to The Standard for Program Management published by PMI.
Irene holds a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the Ural State Polytechnic University in Russia, and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Management. Irene obtained her Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification in 2008, and she joined PMI that same year.
