Global Webinars Presents: Strategy Essentials for Project Managers

Implementing a strategic plan often results in a gap between strategy and execution. Plans typically are written by leaders at the top of the organization and communication to other employees is often lacking and not effective, making it unclear how individual employee actions contribute to the vision and how employees and the work they do align to organization goals. As a result, projects are often chosen in isolation and not connected to the strategy of the organization.

Implementing a strategic plan often results in a gap between strategy and execution. Plans typically are written by leaders at the top of the organization and communication to other employees is often lacking and not effective, making it unclear how individual employee actions contribute to the vision and how employees and the work they do align to organization goals. As a result, projects are often chosen in isolation and not connected to the strategy of the organization.

Aligning an organization around strategy can produce higher performance, with employees, projects, and processes aligned to mission and vision. This presentation will show how strategy focused project management can benefit an organization and contribute to improved performance.

The learning objectives of this webinar:

  • Bridging the gap between strategy and project management
  • Selecting and prioritizing strategic projects
  • Translating enterprise-wide strategy into strategic and operational projects
  • Aligning the organization using strategy
