Farewell to the 'm' and the 'e'

Farewell to the ‘m’ and the ‘e’. I have succumbed to the pressures of globalisation and adopted the American spelling of program as in program manager, program director and so on.

For a long time I have resolutely stuck with the UK spelling – programme. My writing is replete with ‘programme’s. But practical reality has struck. When you look at what is searched for on Linkedin or other places where people look for specialists, they mostly desire a program manager and far fewer a programme manager.

National pride 0, Mammon 1!
