Billions of dollars are wasted each and every year as a result of failed projects, and that’s just in the U.S. alone! Failed projects, quite simply, are those that do not achieve their forecasted business benefits. A strong emphasis is placed on project delivery, but the focus on benefit attainment is seriously lacking. The transformation from project management to strategic project management is long overdue. All levels of organizations must embrace this transformation if we are to prevent this disturbing trend from continuing.

In this workshop, you will learn to be strategic thinkers and business leaders in the global project-based environment. You will appreciate and learn how to apply strategic planning, financial best practices and business innovation to all of your projects. As a result, you will be able to consistently maximize and sustain the business results from your project investments – the ultimate goal of any project or program.

All attendees will receive cutting edge templates, free of charge, for these critical strategic project management artifacts:

  •          Corporate / Departmental Business Plan
