About the Webinar
Whether your organization is large or small, a good strategy is key to your success and ultimately to your survival. This webinar will connect our projects to strategy by exploring opportunities for creating business advantage and how we could keep the focus on strategy while making daily decisions with our stakeholders. We know that a strategy’s purpose is to create a business advantage. That advantage may be a cost (or profit) advantage, a value improvement for our customers, greater focus, incredible speed, or amazing maneuverability. Regardless, a good strategy will add value to the business. Also, we talk about value when we get permission to start a project and when we balance our portfolio of projects. That Cost-Benefit analysis should tie into strategic thinking. When decisions during a project’s execution arise, those decisions should reflect strategy, too. However, we often forget the importance of strategy for many reasons. It’s much easier to focus on the concreteness of building a solution or implementing a technology. Our teams achieve specific tasks, but these tasks rarely feel like strategic actions. To connect value, strategy, and projects, we’ll talk about:
- The value of strategy
- How strategy drives value
- How value drives projects
- The failure of the triple constraints
- Integrating strategy into execution (and other paradoxes)
- PMIWDC – a look back
- PMIWDC – a look ahead
Details on joining the webinar will be included in the confirmation email sent immediately upon registering.
