Top of Form

As a program manager, you must establish practices that’ll best serve the projects you don’t directly oversee and strategize ways to streamline organizational processes. You will use skills like
project coordination to help you
organize stakeholders and project team members, affirm their roles and responsibilities, and help them to see how the projects in the program are related to
support effective project workflows

For this assessment, you will prepare a program kickoff presentation for stakeholders, project managers, and team members. Your presentation will explain the program, including what is known about it, the work ahead, and possibly even details the audience might not receive elsewhere. 

Select Us the organization listed below

(also attached):

· Greyson Corporation using information from the

Greyson Corporation Case Study
(Kerzner, 2022)

Analyze the organization you selected and
define the organizational structure for the project team, including:

· How this structure influences how a project team is organized

· The level of authority associated with the program manager

Identify 1 program of 2 or 3 short-term projects, such as those that can be completed in less than 1 year. The program may be longer than 1 year, but individual projects should not be longer than 1 year. 

Prepare a 10- to 12-slide program kickoff presentation for the project managers, project team members, and stakeholders. 

Include speaker notes, as needed, to supplement content on the screen.

Determine the program’s goals and objectives. Describe how they align with the organization’s strategic objectives and create value for the organization.

Determine the project team structure. Define the teams and identify the roles they would satisfy. Explain how the structure you chose supports effective workflows for the program and the projects included. 

Establish the program timeline and major milestones. Show how the projects in the program will run in relation to each other, whether consecutively or concurrently, or some variation of that so that the audience will be able to see how they’re interdependent. A high-level overview of the timeline and milestones is appropriate here. 

Summarize current assumptions. Consider things you do to identify that influence your decisions, but you don’t necessarily have concrete data about. For example, one assumption might be that material and resource costs will remain consistent throughout the project.

Summarize any known risks. For the purposes of the program kickoff, this is not a risk assessment, but it is an opportunity to alert the audience to risks that you know right now.

Cite any references used and
format citations and references according to APA guidelines. 

Submit your assignment.
