Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jeremy Jarrell, and welcome to my course, PgMP - Governing Your Stakeholders. I'm a Pluralsight author and mentor who helps teams deliver great products. Did you know that your approach to program governance can be very different from your approach to project governance? In this course, we are going to learn the value that a well-defined governance structure can bring to your program, as well as how you can use your governance structure to ensure that your program's execution is aligned with your organization's overall strategy. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what value a governance structure can bring to your program, as well as how you can take your first steps towards establishing one, and how you can use this structure alongside well-defined KPIs to keep your program on track throughout its entire execution cycle. You'll also learn how you can identify and address any risks that may emerge to threaten your program, as well as how you can monitor and ensure the motivation of key members of your program team, and how you can capture the knowledge gained throughout the execution of your program, as well as ensure that knowledge is disseminated effectively across your entire organization. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create a well-defined governance structure for your program so you can ensure that your program is on track to delivering outcomes that align with your organization's strategic objectives. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to learn how you can create an effective governance structure for your program with the PgMP - Governing your Program course, at Pluralsight.
