Ensuring that important business and technology opportunities are incorporated within an organization's overall strategy is an integral element in programme management. Technology must be harnessed to achieve targets while also ensuring that a broad vision is maintained with future enhancements being seamlessly integrated and unleashed as appropriate. The current global economy drives businesses to offer world class services. The portfolio of projects in an organization requires in-depth technical knowledge of the skills and services required both to build and deliver business driven technology. Project management leadership is a highly sought-after skill with global competition demanding that new projects be completed within allotted timescales and budget.
Current demands require that technology and business combine to meet market needs. There can be no retreat from technology, but a firm technical knowledge is required to ensure that resources are concentrated on solutions that meet real business needs and that can be eventually merged within the overall company vision.
