You Only Perform Project Management!? You Are Selling Your Business Short!
As our business world grows in complexity, and the business outcomes for projects become more extensive, the project leader needs to do much more than execute and lead a project management effort. Businesses require than an “Initiative” – something that starts with an idea and ends with total integration into an operational business model – be devised, planned, executed and embedded smartly and seamlessly. Project leaders who only know, profess and manage the project management component are becoming less effective, and less valuable in the marketplace. Leaders who look at the whole process of managing an initiative grasp and navigate the people, and issues associated with business analysis, project management and organisational change management. Only handling all three of these major disciplines can a business succeed in moving forward. This presentation provides hints and tips to attendees for expanding skills and perspectives to manage initiatives, and not just projects. It’s challenging, fun and will have you looking at your job differently.
By expanding skills and capabilities to lead beyond the boundaries of project management, the presentation will help the attendees lift their game of success, as well as the game of the businesses they support. It is only through the broader perspective of integrating versus compartmentalising business analysis, project management and change management can we succeed in our vocation of bringing improvement to our sponsors and stakeholders.
