Program and Portfolio Management (PPMC) Advanced Certification Virtual Course

Program Managers perform one of the most critical of all leadership roles in an organization.  They are leading the successful execution of strategic vision.  Yet, millions of dollars are lost annually to program failures as a result of poor program leadership.   The Program Management Mastery Certification (PMM)™ produces Program Managers with the skills, experience, confidence and discipline to successfully lead complex strategic programs.
