It is difficult to manage a program once the piles start to grow because everything becomes reactive to the piles as opposed to getting in front of the work. Remember that there is no activity on the project schedule called “later” and therefore pushing activities off until “later” is not optimal for success. Not only should the program manager focus on i­ n-­flight activities, but he or she should also spend time looking at the upcoming activities to make sure that they will be ready when the time comes or to see if some work can even be started early.

Diligence can also include proactively managing activities such as looking ahead at contract expirations, resource start dates, future forecasts, and upcoming purchases to make sure they are all tracking to the expected plan. Usually it is the program manager who has to keep all of these items in mind and track them, so if the program manager is not staying on top of all of these items then most likely they will not get the attention needed and possibly will not be completed on time or accurately.
