How consistently successful are your organisation’s projects? Most organisations are recognising projects as not only the vehicle for delivering new products and services, process / system changes etc, but also for more strategic changes of vision, mission and culture. The all-pervading need for innovative approaches to organisational performance, whether to solve existing problems, meet changing needs or harness opportunities demands a more strategic, widespread and consistent application of a project-focused approach. This training course explores key issues of culture, structure and governance that need to be considered and developed to promote highly effective delivery of strategic change and other projects.

Participants attending the Strategic Project Management training course will develop the following competencies:

  • A ‘mind-set’ for engaging with projects more effectively
