Program Management vs. Project Management & Construction Management

Many projects, regardless of size, fall short of achieving overall successful execution. Although the issues are numerous and vary, often the common contributing factor is lack of overall Program Management.

Design Systems, Inc. provides Program Management through the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to coordinate and control the complex range of activities to meet an overall program’s requirements. DSI has over 34 years of experience in providing Program Management in a variety of manufacturing facilities from small brownfield projects up to new billion dollar greenfield programs.

What is the difference between Program Management vs. Project Management or Construction Management?

Program Management focuses on the program as a whole whereas Project Management and Construction Management are more centralized on an entity within a program.

Advantages of Design System’s Program Management Services

One shortcoming of Project Management or Construction Management is their natural tendency to have limited focus within a program. This often translates into lack of overall program coordination, communication and management negatively affecting a program’s cost, schedule and overall success. DSI’s Program Management service provides a high level of leadership that provides visibility over a whole program. From concept through commission, our Program Management leadership brings about the required overall program planning, management, coordination and communication that result in cost control, scope control, schedule management and successful project execution.
