Prerequisite: None

A BI program is a large and complex undertaking with competing interests, conflicting priorities, and simultaneous projects that must be managed from a “big picture” point of view. Program management encompasses the organization, disciplines, and activities necessary to coordinate interdependent projects. It extends beyond project activities to ensure quality and availability of business-critical information services and continuous support of vital business decision-making processes.

The very broad scope of BI program management encompasses business alignment, value management, quality management, change management, and risk management. Find out how a BI competency center (BICC) approach to program management will substantially increase the impact of your BI program.
