Accredited education programmes for major programme managers aim to fulfil a need to equip people aspiring to the role of “Chief Programme Officer”, CPO, a position with equivalence to that of the CEO of a large corporate division with associated responsibilities for delivering the major programme and realising the intended benefits.
