Program management is the complete process of:

– Applying the disciplines of project management, system and industrial engineering, change, integration, scope, cost, schedule and procurement management, and business transformation to manage across several related projects, often with the intention of improving an organization's performance;

– Defining projects in a program and utilizing oversight to support project-level activity ensuring the program goals are met by providing a decision-making capacity that cannot be achieved at project level or by providing the project manager with a program perspective to meet and/or exceed fit, form, and functionality requirements in the most cost effective and timely manner to maximize new product success.
