Whereas projects deliver project-specific outputs, effective programme management delivers successful outcomes, which may have to be delivered across multiple projects. SSI's Sigma Management Framework and Methodology (Sigma MFM) provides a strategic programme management model for managing outcomes.
A typical SSI programme management engagement ensures that the following are achieved:
A clear definition of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to enable the monitoring of outcomes.
Oversight of the purpose and status of all projects in a programme
Oversight to support project-level activity
SSI programme managers take pride in being able to quickly understand the complexity of each organisation's situation, and seek to bring practical experience and depth of insight to ensure that the overall programme goals are met.
