Hello there, I could be considered a hybrid of the old and new way of managing the stuff thats in a program and it's projects.
Having evolved out of Prince2 and Waterfall and into Agile I see both worlds benefits and like to run these benefits together.
From the old world I still like to see my end goals or targets upfront and have an estimate on when the TEAM are Ready For Production [RFP].
My reasoning, not all businesses have infinite budgets to get to RFP or MVP. So when I get asked when can we use it and how much will it cost, I still need that answer.
Then a big part of my role, is to communicate to the Stakeholders, the road-map up to RFP or MVP and beyond i.e. where we are taking the application/service into the future based on our research, crunching the numbers and 'doing the math'.
So in my latest adventure I am running a Program for a shopfront and online retailer in Australia with 4 project streams and 4 suppliers.
That's the short version :)
