Today’s business climate is characterised by unprecedented changes in technology and globalisation, as well as by complex business relationships and the unrelenting drive for competitive success. In this highly stressful environment, it is essential for project managers to think and act strategically, and ask questions such as: How does an organisation formulate a strategy to achieve competitive success? How do projects contribute to the implementation of the organisation’s strategy? How should a project manager develop a project strategy that supports organisational strategic and business goals?

Aligning Project Management with Organisational Strategy gives an in-depth analysis of the process leading from business strategy formation to portfolio development, focusing on how to link a project to the business strategy, apply and maintain alignment of the project strategy and manage the expectations and interests of those who have a stake in the project outcome. Thought-provoking discussions and stimulating exercises highlight this dynamic, timely course.

Attendees will learn how to use a project ranking tool that can be used within your organisation to prioritise strategic projects. This tool is designed to help the project manager ask the right questions in order to understand how the project fits into their organisation’s strategic initiatives.

  • Support top-level strategy formulation
  • Link organisational strategy from business strategy to portfolio development to project implementation
  • Ensure project credibility by aligning your project with your organisation’s goals, objectives and strategies
  • Create and implement an appropriate strategy for your project
  • Communicate your strategy to the project team, the customer, and other project stakeholders
  • Manage stakeholder expectations to maintain portfolio/project alignment
