Programme Management as a Service

The Programme Management function is responsible for delivering change and provides effective co-ordination of the programme’s initiatives and management of their inter-dependencies including oversight of any risks and issues arising. It also includes the co-ordination of the new capability for the business to enable effective change and realisation of projected benefits.


Benefits of Programme Management as a Service

Access to a team of qualified and experience Programme Managers on demand

Rapid transformation of inhouse capabilities

Accelerated value with programme initiatives/value streams aligned to top business priorities

Free up internal resource to focus on competitive advantage activities

Enables delivery of successful business benefits aligned to your organisation

Our Programme Management as a Service has been designed to work for the best interest of the organisation, rather than individual teams, recognising the fact that a programme is only successful if its components or projects are successful.

NWT’s ability to quickly provide Programme Managers allows us to supply immediate support and specialist advice when you need it most. Whether your programme has a life span of a few weeks, months or several years. The impressive skill sets of our Programme Managers enable them to plan, coordinate and execute mission critical programmes according to extremely demanding requirements and constraints – on time and to budget.

Programme Managers oversee and coordinate the various projects and other strategic initiatives throughout an organisation. They help to drive organisational change by assisting with agile transformations, including implementing practices and principles such as SAFe or DevOps. We expect our Programme Managers to align programme management practices and processes with agile methodology to deliver value to customers. A programme manager can bring agile to life for teams across large programmes or individual projects by tailoring programmes to the specific requirements and opportunities of the business.

In essence, this service is designed to free-up senior management teams to focus on essential decision-making and leadership, and supply expertise and information to effectively manage emerging pressures. NWT can provide senior, experienced Programme Managers on an interim basis to manage individual or multiple programmes of work with complex integrations on your behalf.
