I currently perform my workouts so that I do all exercises for a particular body part before moving to the next body part.

(e.g. Training chest and shoulders: Bench Press, Incline Press, Military Press, Behind Neck Press.)

Is there a preferred method for programming your workouts? Would it be more beneficial to do it in an alternating sort of fashion?

(e.g. Training chest and shoulders: Bench Press, Military Press, Incline Press, Behind Neck Press.)

For what it's worth, my goals are hypertrophy related.

My CPT training doesn't decisively state how to go about it, but they infer all exercises for the body part be done before moving on; Weider and others also subscribed to this idea, calling it the "flushing method." Any thoughts and / or sources would be much appreciated.

Bench Press, Incline Press, Military Press, Behind Neck Press are all compound pressing movements and are largely redundant. If you think you need them all, do your priority first. The order doesn`t matter much in this case.
