Introduction To keep up with the competition, organizations often need to manage several inter-related projects at the same time, known as project program management.
Research The researcher studied six completed project programs and their associated projects to discover how single-project management tools can be used to improve efficiencies in project program management.
Findings The researcher found that single-project management tools can play a decisive role in overcoming the principal problems encountered in project program management.
Recommendations The researcher recommends using single-project management tools - such as organizational arrangements, project implementation plans, project control and structural plans - when a program's projects rely on the same resources and when their scope is also inter-related.
