Strategy, Portfolio Management and Project Delivery are like the gears of your organization, engaging with each other to drive the organization’s vision. Leading Project Leaders is a new executive program that works with your organization to hone the soft skills necessary to achieve this harmony that ensures realization of projects’ intended benefits.
The first phase includes preparatory sessions that highlight the hotspots for trouble in your organization’s projects. These will serve as the “defining moments” for your projects–that is, the predictable points of resistance that we can better understand and anticipate in order to improve project success rates.
The focal point of the program is a Workshop that is tailored to your needs. The Workshop includes hands-on exercises and interactive discussion. Follow-up “homework” is assigned. The event’s deliverable is a plan to attack your organization’s recurring points of resistance.
Participants leverage the full value of this program through the wealth of support Project Assistants offers in the Adoption phase. Supplementary webinars introduce new topics on increasing levels of governance. Monthly group exercises include Red Team Reviews focused on improving your projects. Coaching and mentoring follow execution statuses and lessons learned from high-visibility projects. Follow-up surveys and a Quarterly review will facilitate C-level understanding and guidance.
