Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Seminar?

Without the right projects and programmes to carry them out, most strategies will fail. The PMI®’s Pulse of the Profession 2013: The High Cost of Low Performance found that only 42% of organisations report high alignment of projects to organisational strategy. Executives need to decide which initiatives to launch, delay or shut down. PM’s must understand and develop project strategies to support the current business goals.

This Project Management training seminar examines why good strategies fail and barriers that impede the integration of initiatives into ‘business as usual’ (BAU). How projects can be ranked and compared, so that the high profile projects are planned, resourced, delivered and communicated appropriately, to ensure successful strategic delivery.

PMI® is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
