Program management is about enabling others to do the things they’re good at to achieve program success. As program manager, you definitely shouldn’t be doing the work yourself, even “just this once” to get things over the line. It’s critical that the business hold up their end of the bargain and contribute subject matter expertise. And you need to let them! Your job is to drive the train forward, not prepare the food, maintain the engine, and validate tickets. It’s not possible for one person to do everything. It takes a team of people, each with their area of expertise, aligned on the end goal and working efficiently and collaborating well, in order to move a program forward. Your real value is in getting others to do things.
Teamwork makes the dream work
