A Programme Manager manages multiple projects, and sometimes multiple programmes while a Project Manager manages the teams responsible for fulfilling the project and achieving its deliverables. In general terms, a programme manager has broader responsibilities than the project manager. Therefore, the tools they use are focused on either the macro, for the programme manager, or the micro, for the project manager.
