Lead program managers are responsible for overseeing and coordinating the work of program managers. They are responsible for the smooth execution of the work of project teams, creating program strategies, and paving the way for profitable implementation of planned business activities. As a lead program manager, you will be expected to lead and mentor a team of program managers.
You will function as a facilitator for larger initiatives, making sure they run and progress without obstacles. Apart from supervising and guiding the work of other managers, you might have your own project to deal with. You will serve as an example for best practices in program management and work across departments and geographically distant stakeholders to navigate large-scale projects towards unified and comprehensive corporate goals.
