The 3e Factor
Turning Strategic Thinking Into Reality by Developing Corporate Capability

Program Management and Governance

The 3e Factor approach to Program Management and Governance is based on a clear understanding of the principles for success in business transformation. It expands the focus beyond delivering projects on time and on budget to include the delivery of outcomes and value required by the stakeholders.

This expanded view incorporates two key principles:

  • Effective Program Governance is the key to a successful outcome; and
  • Effective Program Governance requires the Project Steering Committee and Project Management to ensure all key aspects of governance are addressed.
