Program and project management

Program and project management: Careers in Supply Chain and Operations
Program and project management: Careers in Supply Chain and Operations

Changes are implemented to a supply chain through projects, so there are lots of jobs for project and program managers. Project managers work across functions and interact with customers and suppliers. Project managers may have lots of responsibility and limited authority. PMs need great communications skills in order to meet deadlines. Project managers need to have business acumen. Multiple projects are grouped together into a program. Program managers need all of the skills that project managers have, but they use them at a higher level. Project managers can work across any part of the supply chain. They may work on several projects at the same time. The projects may be short term or long term assignments and often involve travel.
