Programs reside within portfolios. Programs represent a collection of projects that share a common strategy, objective, or goal that transcends project boundaries.
A portfolio is a collection of programs that have unifying characteristics. The projects in a program usually compete for the same resources, budget, or time slot.
To create a program:
- Navigate to a portfolio.
- Select the Programs tab.
- Click +Add Program.
- Both new and existing programs can be added to a portfolio. Adding an existing program carries all projects associated with that program to the portfolio. Be careful not to unintentionally move projects this way.
- Name the Program. Once the program is created, begin to add projects as needed.
