Agile Program Managers

Optimize team performance

Maximize value delivery

No one said your job was easy, but truly great Agile Program Managers will make most believe otherwise. Responsible for the successful planning and execution of a program, you help to manage teams of teams to track and resolve program risks and impediments as well as navigate dependencies. You’re also tasked with leveling up status and progress information to portfolio and company leadership while also distilling down priorities and strategic guidance from leadership to the teams.

In order to do your job effectively, you need end-to-end visibility into all aspects of the programs you help orchestrate and a means of sharing insights with others. This can only be accomplished when all the elements of a program, and associated data, can be intelligently connected.
