Sub-Specialisms in Project and Programme Management
At McGregor Boyall, our Project and Programme Management recruiters identify and select skilled professionals who can manage projects or programmes effectively.
Project and Programme Management are two related but distinct sub-specialisms within the field of management. Project Management involves the planning, execution, monitoring, and control of a specific project to achieve its objectives within a set timeline and budget. Some sub-specialisms within project management include agile project management, construction project management, IT project management, and project portfolio management. Programme Management, on the other hand, involves the management of multiple related projects that are aimed at achieving a broader set of objectives or benefits. Some sub-specialisms within programme management include benefits management, stakeholder management, risk management, and governance.
With our consultants based in the UK and Europe, the Middle East and North America regions, we can assist international organisations and businesses looking to expand into overseas markets, helping them access the long-term benefits a robust governance strategy can provide.

Popular Project and Programme Management Jobs
Responsible for overseeing the entire project lifecycle from its initial planning phases through to implementation, project managers ensure that they deliver on their client’s requirements in a timely manner, ensuring that all anticipated work is included within the scope and is budgeted for adequately. Given that they’ll need to delegate tasks and provide updates to all internal and external stakeholders, communication and leadership skills are crucial for success in this role.
Often tasked with ensuring multiple related projects are delivered, the programme manager is tasked with ensuring that all completed work aligns with the organisation’s overall strategic objectives. Planning, resource management, and the ability to coordinate across internal departments are vital for programme managers, particularly given that they’ll be responsible for ensuring that all the work that project managers oversee is completed on time and within budget.
A project coordinator provides specialised administrative support to project and programme managers, helping to ensure that tasks are delegated to the correct departments. They require expertise in planning, scheduling, and budgeting, as well as in collecting and analysing data on productivity and efficiency, as their role will be pivotal in improving internal processes and communication.
Ensuring Agile working methodologies are implemented effectively, the scrum master is crucial for organisations looking to improve their efficiency. They facilitate team meetings, remove the impediments to project progress, and ensure that all workers are aligned on their goals to enhance productivity. Leadership skills are vital to career success as a scrum master, as is the ability to think on one’s feet and quickly solve complex problems.
Project analysts will devise processes and systems for gathering, parsing and analysing data, highlighting trends and providing insights to project managers that will help them to make informed decisions which are in the best interests of the business. A crucial role in managing the project team’s exposure to risk, strong analytical skills, the ability to present to internal stakeholders, and strong planning skills are necessary to be successful in a project analyst role.
