As leading organizations have broadened their knowledge and skills in project management, a need for effective management of programs has evolved. The Project Management Institute (PMI) issued a global standard for program management in early 2006 (revised in 2008) and later launched Program Management Professional (PgMP®) certification credential. According to PMI, a program is a group of related projects managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits and control not available from managing them individually.
