Transforming Your Org Culture, Processes and Structure to Align Project Execution Enterprise Strategy

We will share real-life experiences and lessons learned in shifting our PMO to a more strategy-focused implementation group. We will explore key elements that drives success, including 1) org culture, 2) executive support and leadership, 3) change management, 4) market research, 5) clear alignment of strategy and project outcomes, 6) stakeholder engagement early and often, 7) mechanisms to improve engagement and transparency, and much more. While no method is absolutely fool proof, this real life experience will provide insights into what worked and what needed adjusting to improve project delivery in alignment with enterprise wide goals.
