In this article the author focuses on the significance of program management on information management system projects. Misfires in program management on large laboratory information management system (LIMS) projects can cause catastrophes, although the physical stress is more of the, Vice-President-wants-to-know-why-the-project-is-late variety. Projects and program management play different roles in information management system projects. In the project food chain, project managers are always subordinate to program managers and a one-to-many relationship could occur in larger projects. In a major laboratory automation initiative, following components are observed, LIMS planning, LIMS implementation, LIMS testing, Validation, Instrument interfacing, System interfaces and IT planning.
