Strategy … and Projects?

Posted by Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin in Project Management Office (PMO), Site News, Strategy Execution | 1 Comment

Over the past ten years, we’ve come to value the results of our Center for Business Practices action research events, the Strategy & Projects Summit and Project Management Benchmarking Forums. At these events, project management leaders from major organizations have met and exchanged advice, best practices, challenges and solutions. They've forged working relationships with the CBP and with their peers that have helped them to positively impact the project management culture in their own organizations. With this blog, we’re expanding these face-to-face events to a global discussion network.

For years, we’ve watched as project management has expanded in influence and clout. We’ve followed with excitement the upward trajectory of project management within organizations - and, we hope, offered research tools to lead the way. From a tactical, single-project focus to the IT project office ... to the enterprise Center of Excellence, and on to the EPMO … from the project to the project portfolio … from project excellence to strategy execution … .

Today, when management gurus and CEOs discuss execution, they are talking project and program management: governance, portfolio selection and balancing, performance measurement, resource capacity and competence, and the IT infrastructure that makes interdisciplinary management of “strategic initiatives” (those things we’ve always called projects) possible.

It’s an exciting time for project professionals. Best practices are only now being worked out for the deployment of project management at the strategic level. We’re constantly identifying new practices and approaches, and look forward to sharing them with you and hearing your feedback. Sign up below to receive a heads-up when new content is posted here; or come back and visit often.

We’re looking forward to the conversation.

Onward and upward,
