Training Program/Course Description:

"In today’s turbulent and complex environment, the ability to manage and achieve significant organisational goals has become a core skill for senior, portfolio, project, and programme managers. This 5-day programme is designed to equip the later with the concepts and skills to enable them to drive value from the execution of strategy through strategic projects and programmes.

Programme benefits
A successful project happens because of four distinct components. First, was it the right project? Second, did the organisation support it? Third, was the project was well defined and planned? Finally, was it executed well? Most courses in project management tend to focus on the last two aspects; this course however focuses more on the first two. A further view taken by this programme is that 4 aspects need to be considered to ensure successful implementation of strategic project/programmes. The aspects are Process, Tools and Technology, People, and Organisational Culture and this programme examines and discusses each of these aspects in an integrated manner.
