Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jeremy Jarrell, and welcome to my course, Program Management: Sustaining Your Program's Benefits After Delivery. I'm a Pluralsight author and mentor who helps teams deliver great products. Did you know that helping your organization get the most of your program involves more than simply shipping your program deliverables. To help your organization get the most out of your program, you must also prepare your organization to sustain the benefits created by your program outcomes after your program has ended. In this course, we are going to learn the steps you can take to ensure your organization is properly prepared to sustain your program benefits after delivery. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to analyze your program outcomes to ensure that they match your organization's expectations, as well as how to develop a program transition plan to ensure that your organization has a clear plan of how to maintain and support your program deliverables after your program has closed. And you'll learn how to develop a benefits sustainment plan to ensure that your program deliverables will continue to add value to your organization after program closure activities have completed. By the end of this course, you'll know how to ensure that your program outcomes will continue to provide value to your organization long after delivery. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how you can ensure that your organization benefits from your program long into the future with a Program Management: Sustaining Your Program Benefits After Delivery Course, at Pluralsight.

Analyzing Your Program Outcomes
My name is Jeremy Jarrell, and welcome to Analyzing Your Program Outcomes, part of the Program Management: Sustaining Your Program's Benefits After Delivery course of the PGMP Exam Prep Learning Path. The responsibilities of a program manager do not end after the final project is delivered, but rather transitioned to working with your organization to ensure that it's prepared to take responsibility for the ongoing maintenance of those deliverables and sustaining the benefits that they have produced. In this final course of the PGMP Exam Prepare Learning Path, you'll learn the steps necessary to ensure that the benefits you and your program team have worked so hard to deliver will continue to add value long after your program closes. To do this, you'll learn how to analyze the outcomes that your program produced, as well as how to ensure that those outcomes met the expectations of your program's stakeholders. And you'll learn how to prepare your organization for the eventual transition of the stewardship and maintenance of your program deliverables so they are prepared to support those deliverables in the future. And finally, you'll learn the steps necessary to ensure that the benefits your program delivers can be sustained long after delivery occurs. We'll begin by learning how to analyze the benefits that your program has produced.
