Organisations often rely on managers to lead and execute specific projects in order to realise their broader strategic objectives. Mergers, acquisitions, product launches and strategic realignments all demand skills in navigating complexity, understanding risk and effective stakeholder management. If their managers lack such capabilities, then they will struggle to take advantage of new opportunities, drive change or continue to create value.
Many managers believe that effective projects are simply about good planning and scheduling. However, you could get all your planning and scheduling right and still not succeed in managing projects effectively. Avoiding pitfalls and delivering the right outcomes is about adopting a broader perspective
Leading Strategic Projects Successfully is a three-day programme that provides managers with this more holistic view. We adopt a managerial - rather than a technical - perspective, and focus on issues that concern those who lead projects. We also consider the impact on those who may have oversight and those who will be required to implement new initiatives.
