There is more to effective project management than meeting deadlines, budget, and scope. Achieving strategic goals and delivering real value is only possible through competent project management that is guided by and aligned with an organization’s strategy. In today’s fast changing world environment, organizations formulate and execute strategy to meet new challenges, improve service delivery, align their employees to vision and mission, align projects and activities to strategy, and delivery value for customers and stakeholders. Unfortunately, many of these strategy efforts fail to acknowledge that the delivery process is as important as the strategic plan.
Poor project management and stakeholder commitment can hinder execution of even the most well-designed strategies. Strategic project management takes traditional project management principles and practices to another level that improves strategic alignment, informs resource allocation decisions, informs operational planning, and helps mitigate risks. Strategic project management makes strategy leadership everyone’s job, not just the C-suite. Great strategic project leadership focuses on aligning project and portfolio management with strategy, helping coordinate clients and teams, forming a vision for success, and keeping everyone on track.
