Whether you are working on regulatory compliance projects, government contracts or private industry, strategic thinking applied to project management best practice is a core skill that is needed and desired.
This course will ensure you are able to not just prioritize from a pool of desired projects, but also evaluate which projects and programs will help achieve your overall organizational strategic objectives. You will give greater purpose to your projects, by turning them into the means to fulfil strategy in your organization and move it the direction it wants to go.
Through classroom discussion, case studies, and exercises and templates, delegates learn best practices in project strategy prioritization, strategy execution, strategic communication, strategic planning, performing, measuring, and delivering.
You will learn how to align work with strategy, build effective teams, and deliver business value and results. We will discuss and define the proper times to use a predictive method or agile method of project delivery and the strengths and weakness of each.
This certification will arm you with higher professional visibility and help increase the recognition for project management as a profession, along with equipping you with relevant, actionable strategic plans, to make your organization stronger and smarter.
