The program manager is responsible for setting the course of the learning services program and the specific research agenda. The program manager will define and deliver research documents and consulting projects on behalf of vendors selling learning services, content and software to the corporate market, as well as to the buyers they serve.

This program manager role involves mentoring and guiding a senior research analyst, also part of the Learning Services program at IDC.
