Attaining Strategic Goals through Projects
Overview:

The Challenge
Every enterprise has strategic goals. Every enterprise invests resources in projects. It is generally understood that projects should support an organization's strategic goals and that every project should be a good investment, but is that always true? Are we funding the right projects at the right time? Does the executive team have clear guidance on how much each project will cost and what it will return? Do they know with certainty that every completed project has actually created the Business Value intended? What can an executive do to ensure that every project is worthwhile?

The Solution

  • Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is the primary business process that underlies execution of an organization's Business Strategy. It is through PPM that we prioritize, fund, oversee and evaluate our projects. Effective PPM ensures that we do the right projects at the right time.
  • The Project Management Office (PMO) can be a powerful influence in keeping each project on track. An effective PMO ensures that projects are well planned, promotes effective project management practice and keeps management informed of current status.
  • Through Project Stewardship, the management team has the power to create an environment that supports project success. This workshop explains specific steps that you can take to put PPM, PMO and Project Stewardship to work in your organization.
