Mostly it is a matter of having the permissions for the program to be
something like 755 if owned by root.

Although sudo is ok if you want to give execution permissions to a small
group of users, if you want to give permission to all users to execute a
program that needs root privileges when running, then SUID through:
chmod u+s  seems more direct.
