Be sure to read the lesson for this week for more input and guidance.
Before you can answer this question, you must understand what program management is. Your textbook takes a shot at defining this concept but providing the definition from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) glossary. What is clear from this definition is that program management has a centralized leader (the program manager) who is ultimately responsible for an entire effort, down to the minute details. Think of anything that you are responsible for in your life and think about how every aspect of that responsibility is accomplished; it doesnâ€™t have to be job related. Now think about how that responsibility is taken care of or accomplished. There is numerous steps in a harmonious process, many of which rely on a previous step to complete. The accomplishing of that responsibility is likened to managing the â€œprogram.â€
