Title: Strategic Design and Project Delivery -- Bridging the Gap

This webinar will examine the critical relationship between organizational strategy and the execution of projects. The potential value of maintaining strategy/project connection will illustrated and way to achieve and maintain that vital connection. The supporting slides for this program will help make the relevance of PMI’s emphasis on the Strategic element of the Talent Triangle. It will explain why “simply” being a good project manager will not be enough to survive in today’s world of careful selection of value-add projects. The sooner it can be determined that a project is not making a strategic contribution to organizational business objects, the sooner alternates can be considered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify how their project fits in the organization’s strategic initiatives.
  • Using a sophisticated and integrated project management information system to support identify and clarify strategic relevance of decision being made at the project level.
