Release 1

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to enable a program manager to engage in collaborative alliances. It includes identifying opportunities and forging alliances with other organisations to facilitate attainment of program benefits.

Collaborative alliances are significantly different in focus and content from commercial contracts in that the parties operate as partners with shared interests and a higher degree of joint decision-making. Collaborative agreements often involve organisations that are part of the same legal entity such as business units of the same corporation or departments of the same government.

The unit applies to individuals who are program managers and those managing a suite of projects (a program). They operate within assigned authority levels, are responsible for their own performance, program outcomes, and sometimes the performance of others.

Individuals in this role may be operating within an organisation, a business or as a consultant.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
