Abstract (in English)

For transmitting the spirit of heritage sites, the site management team shall know their responsibilities; in other words has sound and well defined management plan. PMI (Project Management Institute, USA) has developed two standards as guidelines for managing programs and managing project. Under a MSc. dissertation, the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) guide was compared with traditional “heritage sites management” practice, and was concluded that project management approach is applicable for managing cultural heritage sites as a new approach, and the benefits were discussed (Hajialikhani 2006). This paper will discuss that program management, as a new methodology, may be also adopted for managing cultural heritage sites to include all the required activities.
